2016 Rockbare RB1 Shiraz
Wine Rating 
 
95

Sourced from two low yielding vineyards close to the Marananga sub region in the Barossa that sit about 280 m above sea level.

Deep, inky red in the glass with generous spice and high toned dark berry fruits that combine with some leather and earth on the nose. The balance on this wine is quite impeccable, the tannins are velvety yet have an earthen impact, with plum and blackberry fruit ripe but in proportion to both tannin and oak. There is an almost saline note to the wine that is awash with dark berry fruits and spice that keeps you wanting to go back fo another sip. The length is impressive. Top end Barossa Shiraz at a great price.
