Gamekeeper’s Shiraz Grenache Touriga 2015

Overview

Ripe red berry fruits and spice with a lift of floral notes are prominent on the nose.  A seamless integration highlighting the best attributes from each variety in this red blend. A spectrum of bright red fruits and supple tannin from the Shiraz combines with the generous juicy raspberry flavors of the Grenache. Touriga Nacional complements perfectly with rose petal and floral-like spice.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
A short winter and warm dry spring got the growing season off to an early start. A well timed rain in mid-January brought relief to dry vineyards and rainwater tanks after many months without rain. The early start and ideal ripening conditions after the rain brought on vintage at a frantic pace with many vineyards ripening simultaneously. What ensued was a month of everyone working 24/7, with vintage finishing a month earlier than normal. It became evident that despite the rapid ripening, all the 2015 wines showed abundant aromas and flavors.

Gamekeeper’s Shiraz, Grenache & Touriga parcels are sourced from mostly southern Barossa Valley, with red brown loam over shale soils, perfect for highlighting fresh varietal characters.
