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.
black fruit, herbacious, long finish
External Reviews for Rolf Binder Wines Shiraz Grenache Halliwell Barossa Valley
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90Although the deep ruby-tinged 2004 Shiraz/Grenache Halliwell seems superficial, it is outstanding in its purity, richness, and overall perfume. While it does not have the depth of its 2003 counterpart, this beauty should drink well for 5-7 years.
