Bachelor's Block, Ebenezer Shiraz 2015, Barossa Valley
"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's Block Shiraz 2015, Ebenezer
"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’.
