An all time favourite of mine, these guys just keep delivering! The perfect balance of fruit and spice and earthiness to drink now, but will tackle the competition head-on with a few years maturing in your cellar.
Mountadam is on a rocky escarpment at the highest elevated, south east edge of the Barossa. This wine is a blend of Shiraz from our estate and the Barossa Valley floor. It shows the elegance of the cooler Eden Valley and the richness of traditional Barossa Valley wines. The wine has a deep red colour with vibrant purple tinges. The primary aromas are of cracked pepper and dark ripe plums with subtle spicy smokiness. Flavours are of cherries, dark chocolate and vanilla with a firm tannin structure and persistent length of fruit flavour.
Accolades and Awards:
2014 Vintage: 93 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Matured for 14 months in French barriques. Its bright crimson-purple hue lights the path for its complex, yet fresh, blend of plum and blackberry with more spicy/savoury nuances; fine tannins and oak complete the picture."
From the Winery
The fruit was crushed to small stainless steel fermenters over a three week period. The juice was drained and returned to the tank daily to assist in extracting colour and flavour. The wine was matured for 12 months in old French barriques. Minimal fining and filtration was engaged in the production of this wine.
