Handpicked Signature Barossa Shiraz
This offering from Handpicked is made by legendary Barossa winemaker, Rolf Binder. It's a fuller-bodied, more oaky style of wine that displays aromas of dark spicy fruits and mocha on the nose, whilst the palate is rich and sumptuous with a dark-berries centre, a lick of bracken, fine-grained tannins, and a dry, spiced finish. It will kick on for another 7-10 years, but would match well with a rich red meat dish now.
The wine has a vibrant, dark opaque ink colour, with purple hues. The aromas, show strong blackcurrant, dark plum and spicy mulberry fruit, with a hint of well integrated subtle oak. The palate is full and robust, showing intense flavours of dark berries, plums with characteristics Barossa earthiness. The mid palate is lively, rich in texture, with well integrated tannins and a pure underlying of classy oak.
