2018 Small Berry Shiraz American Oak
The same friends lovingly hand picked 2.8 tonne from 3 acre hilltop block of rocky blue limestone on February 18th 2018.
Flavour ripe and good acidity, Joe made this wine in the same method as the French Oak, but instead matured it in bone dry, shaved AP John American Oak for 28 months.
This deep dark red offers luscious blackberry/mulberry conserve with a dense dark pallete. The barberry fruit bursts in to the whole palate ending in a sweet 'Bounty' coconut oak which lingers for more than a minute. Rich luscious exceptional length.
This is the kind of Barossa Shiraz Joe fell in love with in 1992. Only share this balanced beast with your best friends over the next 20 years.
