Rolf Binder Shiraz Heysen 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Not reviewed; 2001 vintage rated 90 points by Robert Parker: The saturated purple-colored 2001 Shiraz Heysen Vineyard was closed (at least on the day I tasted it), but offers a tight but promising nose of damp foresty floor scents interwoven with blackberry liqueur and a hint of tar. Full-bodied, chewy, and unctuous, with high tannin (largely concealed by the wealth of fruit), this primary effort has a promising upside. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
