Bethany GR 9 Reserve Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

From a very good year in the Barossa Valley comes this generously styled shiraz. Ripe black fruits and plums tease the senses, along with a good lick of vanilla and chocolate oak. The palate is quite plummy with some toasty oak and savoury aged characters creeping in. The tannins are mellow and fully absorbed into the wine making it smooth and very approachable right now. It'll go for a few more years yet, but would be great right now with beef wellington.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 vintage saw generous fruit characters and typical Barossa full bodied flavours expected from this varietal and has provided us with a wine that is dense ruby red with some hints of deep purple.

Ripe plums, mulberries and chocolate notes backed by oaky vanillin nuances fill the bouquet and follow on to plumy, briery flavours on the palate tempered with toasty oak flavours. This wine is showing good concentration and weight featuring well integrated, fine grained tannins, it is built to last, a superb food wine with typical Barossa pedigree.
