Bachelor’s Block Ebenezer Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2016
‘Deluxe packaging is the start, the vinification precisely reflected in the dark berries of the bouquet and the supple, medium-bodied palate. By both whole-bunch/ berry fermentation and French oak maturation, the tannins are relegated to the sidelines and told to keep quiet. An opulent wine in opulent packaging – no expense spared.’ Cork. 14.5% alc. To: 2046.
Bachelor's Block Ebenezer Shiraz, Barossa 2016
"It’s earthen and coal-like with rounds of plum-soaked fruit. Oak adds polish and a creaminess to the texture, but not a lot in flavour terms; thankfully. It’s a coherent wine, every aspect on the same page. Tangy, earthen, loganberry-like notes contribute energy and interest. It’s a smart wine. Every detail has been examined and then placed with care'.
