Barossa Shiraz 2010

Vetus Purum

97 Points
“Made in tiny quantities and only sold in airport shops in AUS, Asia and the United State; the packaging is at a level only previously seen with top end Special Bin Penfolds reds. Hand-picked from the Willandra Vineyard in the Barossa Valley, it is an outstanding wine, still amazingly youthful, with a cascade of plum, blackberry, licorice and multi-spice flavours on the very long, superbly balanced and focused palate. It spent 24 months in a mix of new and used oak, now totally integrated.” James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com.au, 2-Sept-2016

Bouquet: The bouquet is delightfully complex. In its aromatic depths are plum, spice and clove notes, with a hint of vanilla and even roasted meat.

Palate: Immediately supple and beguiling, the flavours keep building with plum, spice and clove layered over chocolate and vanilla notes. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has an assertive texture with abundant fine tannins. Seductively poised, this wine reflects all that is great about Shiraz grown in ancient Barossan soils.

Cellaring Potential: Beautifully integrated on release, this wine will reveal additional layers of complexity as develops in the cellar over the next 10 years.

Serving Suggestion: Eye-fillet of beef wrapped in prosciutto with a porcini farce, served with well-roasted bone marrow.
