Turners Crossing Shiraz Bendigo the Cut 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Lifted dark and intense blue and blackberry fruits dominate the bouquet with no overt jamminess and with some nuances of savoury black pepper and spice. Ripe and rich in flavour, the mixed fruits and spices are apparent and are framed in rich gentle but firm concentrated tannins and integrated French and Hungarian oak. The sandy red soils contribute to the earthy notes, which contribute further richness and complexity to the wine. Amongst the intense fruit is lively integrated acidity. Together, all the components will integrate with some bottle age to produce a classical rich Bendigo Shiraz.

Turner’s Crossing Vineyard is located in Bendigo, an historic wine-growing region in Central Victoria, Australia. The vineyard is located on the banks of the Loddon River, at Turner’s Crossing, a popular ford used by local farmers in the mid to late 1800s. For well over a century the ranges of Central Victoria surrounding Bendigo have been home to some of Australia’s greatest wines. The first grapes were planted in the region in 1856, just after the start of the massive gold rush. The gold rush brought tens of thousands of hopeful diggers from around world, many of whom had extensive knowledge of the wines and foods of Europe. Their knowledge, combined with the exceptional quality of Bendigo fruit, yielded wines of such distinction that the judges at the 1873 Vienna Exhibition were heard to exclaim of Bendigo’s early Hermitage (Shiraz) that “no Colonial wine can be that good!” The tradition of great wines in Bendigo continues, as evidenced by the accolades in the press and the numerous awards at wine shows throughout Australia.
