"Their goal is to harvest fruit as it’s just about ripe, well before it begins to dimple. This wine comes from vineyards throughout Barossa that they caught when the fruit was still as red-scented as cherries, the tannins just turning toward suppleness. There’s a juicy, herbal tobacco note and a bitumen-black edge to the tannins, sharing some of the compelling tarry bitterness of nebbiolo tannins in a young Barolo. Finely integrated without losing its rustic charm, this is tart and lovely Barossa shiraz"
