Bachelor's Block Shiraz, Ebenezer, 2015

94pts

 

"A natural yeast fermentation which included 40% whole bunches before spending 20 months in 300l French barrels were the recipe for this very well put together Barossa shiraz. Red and black fruits, some olive tapenade and with the whole bunch element nicely integrated, this concentrated, medium to full bodied wine is light on its feet at the same time"

Bachelor's Block, Ebenezer Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley

91pts

 

"Deep red colour with a good purple tint. The bouquet is sweetly ripe berry fruits, with a subtle earthy and sooty overtone. It's soft and rounded with a glycerol-like sweetness and slipperiness. It's full-bodied and smooth-textured, fairly straightforward but has time on its side. The tannins are gentle and supple. Lovely sweet core of fruit, soft enough to enjoy young - but it will also reward cellaring."

"Bachelor of Bachelor’s, it’s a beauty. Barossa shiraz in full strut. Coal-like, earthen, blackberried, coffeed. Drenched in dark fruit, clipped by smoky oak and that savoury/earthen/brooding character the best Barossa shiraz often boasts. Tannin helps pull the flavours out through the finish. There’s a warmth here but it’s not distracting, or intrusive. Quality here is ‘up there’.
