  Saltram No.1 Shiraz 2009
Saltram No.1 Shiraz.gif
The Saltram No.1 Shiraz is a richly layered wine with notes of black olive, pure dark chocolate, blackberries and blood plums. Complex spice notes combined with subtle oak enrich the wines aromatic nose. The palate is full and powerful with rich, elegant, varietal flavours of cassis, blood plum and cherries. The chocolate and liquorice notes following right through to the finish. This is a sumptuous wine with soft ripe tannins and great structure.

This wine was sourced from mature, low yielding vineyards from the north eastern and central Barossa Valley and a parcel from northern Eden Valley. After careful harvesting to ensure perfect ripeness, the unique parcels were crushed into traditional-style open fermenters to begin a long ferment with extended maceration to ensure full extraction of flavour, colour and tannins. The wines were then pressed and racked separately before being transferred into a combination of seasoned (52%) and new French (91%) and American oak for twenty two months maturation. Large French oak vats accounted for 21% of the French oak. Maturation in larger vats enables the rich tannins to soften and complex over time while ensuring the individual characteristics of
the vineyard are not overwhelmed.
