The Colonial Estate Shiraz Blend Barossa Valley Emigré 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Barossa Valley is a source of disparate terroirs. For Émigré the inspiration has been to embrace this and produce a wine that represents the palette of the Barossa Valley - from Greenock in the western hills to the Eden Valley in the east, taking in the valley floor. Émigré is sourced from the Colonial-owned vineyards and is made up of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre, Muscadelle, and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the vineyards comprising Grenache and Mourvedre surround the stone built winery. The wine is the product of diligent viticulture. Spur-pruning, canopy management, green harvesting, and handpicking all come together to produce ripe, pure bunches of grapes that are subjected to double-triage before being conveyed into new wooden vats. Oak barrels from French coopers complete the wine’s formation. Final soft pressing is undertaken in an imported basket press.

World’s End is the culmination of over 15 years of winemaking in Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and the Barossa Valley, Australia by Jonathan Maltus and his team. To access that information please check out www.maltus.com. The 2008 vintage marks the beginning of what we hope will become a love affair between our French-inspired winemaking and viticultural approach and the beautiful landscape and terroir of the Napa Valley. Close cropping, double-sorting, lees in suspension, will be part of the norm. Read less

A Rhone-based blend of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre as well as Carignan & Cabernet Sauvignon, it exhibits a sweet perfume of graphite, black fruits, sweet cherries, licorice, smoke, and background vanillin. Full-bodied, rich, textured, and impressively long, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Auge: hellgelb mit goldenen Reflexen; Nase: klassische Sémillon-Nase, frisch und fruchtig, mit einem Hauch von Holz und Honig; Gaumen: im Mund angenehm, ausgewogen und frisch, von durchschnittlicher Struktur. Die Assemblage mit dem Riesling, ohne jeglichen Säurezusatz, verleiht Textur und Frische. Langer Abgang.
