Named after the nearby Rutherglen Goldmine, after tasting the '15 Bobbie Burns Shiraz you'll feel as though you've struck gold.
Medium red with purple hues. Lifted red plum and mulberry fruit integrated with aromas of ground spice and black pepper. There are faint aromas of cedary oak in the background also.
The palate is medium-bodied and complex, delivering flavours of plum, dark cherry and mulberry fruit with earth and peppery notes. Acidity adds freshness and structure to the mid palate with fine-grained earthy tannins adding elegance and length.
Awards and Accolades
2013 Vintage: 94 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Australian Wine Companion "Richness and personality. Excellent release. Blackberry, iodine, leather and toast, with musky notes adding an extra layer of appeal. Grainy, earthen tannin gives it an authoritative stamp. Excellent value."
From the Winery
After fermentation on skins for six to seven days using closed and rotary fermenters, the wine was subsequently aged for a period of 12 months in a mixture of new to three-year-old premium French and American barrels.
The favourable 2015 growing season has produced a Bobbie Burns Shiraz with incredible depth and concentration of fruit flavours. Our long history with this wine suggests it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 10-12 years. Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.
