Opaque ruby. Sexy oak-spiced aromas of cherry-cola, boysenberry and pipe tobacco. Lush and creamy in texture, with intense dark fruit flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins add shape to a long, sappy, appealingly sweet finish. This wine is a baby.

A convivial, lively shiraz, 128 offers red fruit vibrancy balanced by round, spicy tannins. Its simple berry-scented fruit will keep you chewing on the bones long after the lamb chops are gone.

Opaque ruby. Sexy oak-spiced aromas of cherry-cola, boysenberry and pipe tobacco. Lush and creamy in texture, with intense dark fruit flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins add shape to a long, sappy, appealingly sweet finish. This wine is a baby. This crisp red shows density and depth to the blackberry, licorice and pepper flavors, which play against firm tannins on the spicy finish. Best from 2014 through 2018. 11,500 cases imported. -HS ** SOLD OUT **

Undurchdringliche Farbe mit violetten Rändern. Das Bouquet erinnert an Soja und Schwarztee. Diese außergewöhnliche Duftserie wird am Gaumen durch die typische Barossa-Charakteristik komplettiert: Die Eichenwürze ist betont sanft, was der dichten Frucht der Shiraz Gelegenheit gibt, überschwänglich aufzutreten. Pfeffrige Frucht steht neben raffinierten Akzenten von Anis, Rhabarber und Roter Bete. Die normalerweise zu erwartenden Fruchtaromen von roten und schwarzen Johannisbeeren sind nur leicht zu erkennen. Am Gaumen wirkt der Bin 150 frisch und jugendlich. Die Textur ist seidig, geschmeidig und von feinkörnigen Tanninen durchzogen. Am Gaumen lassen sich deutlich geröstete Kaffeebohnen finden, die zerstampft mit Waldbeeren, Veilchen und Muskat ihren Geschmack verströmen.

Chief-Winemaker John Duval beschreibt diesen Wein wie folgt: "Der Coonawarra Bin 128, gekeltert aus 100% Shiraz, zeigt den typischen Fruchtcharakter dieser Traube. Ziel soll es sein, dem Wein einen leichten, feinen Holzcharakter zu verleihen." Das Traubengut, alles erstklassige Shiraz-Trauben, geerntet im perfekten Reifezustand, zeigt ein optimal blumiges, ein loderndes Bouquet. Sein Körper ist weich und komplex mit einem reifen und tiefen Fruchtgeschmack, sowie leichten Vanille-Aromen. Im Abgang angenehme Tannine, die durch eine Lagerung sogar noch feiner werden.


Winemaker's Notes:

French oak notes are just discernible, providing a cedar/charcoal-carbon backdrop against small-berried fruits. The refined and compact Bin 128 sits comfortably and confidently in the mouth with an appealing texture and softened tannins. Stylish oak and lively acidity add to the palate appeal. Balanced and varietal, this Bin 128 is true to its style, region and vintage and will repay medium term cellaring.
