Clos Otto Boxhead Cab/Shiraz 2011

Member Review by pboss:

Fantastic syrah from South Australia. I really wouldn't expect much more from a wine at this price. The perfect amount of spice and pepper combined with undertones of earth and smoke and a modest amount of fruit. Medium finish and well balanced alcohol round out this very enjoyable wine. Will definitely repeat this purchase.

Boxhead winemakers is a collaboration between Hentley Farms winery of Barossa, Australia and their American Importer Vine Street Imports. Their goal is to produce an affordable range of wines from South Australia that reflect local flavors. The wines are hand-crafted at Hentley Farm from grapes sourced from choice vineyard sites across South Australia. From the VS Imports website: “A number of different winemakers were involved in the Boxhead Shiraz winemaking, with responsibilities split by regionality. All parcels were crushed, destemmed and left on skins for approximately 10 days during primary ferment. The parcels were then pressed and kept separate for malolactic fermentation. A portion underwent malolactic fermentation and maturation in new and 1yr old French barriques to add complexity.” Read less
