Cracka Review

The Tin Shed is exactly as it’s described, a basic shed where Peter and Anne Clarke make a small amount of wine in the Barossa. The Melting Pot describes the process of blending of various fruit parcels from the Eden Valley as well as adding some funk and spice from the addition of Grenache and Mourvedre. This is a classic Shiraz for pouring when you are cooking a large chunk of meat. It’s warm and spicy with great length and superb balance.

Winemaker's Notes

2015 was an exceptional vintage producing wines of great intensity and balance. The 2015 Melting Pot Shiraz was all produced in small batch open fermenters, cold soaked with daily pump over’s and minimal additions. The Barossa component is from the Northern Barossa to give the wine warmth and richness whilst the Eden Valley portion gives structure, perfume and cool climate spice. Together they show the balance and elegance of the vineyards from which they came. This is an easy drinking lighter style Shiraz to match anything from pizza to a good steak.

Region: 15% Eden Valley / 85% Barossa Valley.

Oak: 12 months old oak with 10% new French & American.

Colour: Deep bright red purple hues.

Nose: Very lifted berry fruits, spice, white pepper, blue fruit & chocolate.

Palate: Rich and dark with hints of white pepper, dark spice and fruit, well balanced oak and soft tannins.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2002 Vintage) says
This fantastically full-on, powerful Barossa shiraz -gutsy, black-fruity, spicy - has tiny splashes of grenache mourvedre and cabernet thrown in to give it complexity. And it's in a screw-top bottle, which is great. And it really was made in a tin shed ...
