Saltram Mamre Brook Barossa Valley Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Saltrams step it up here with this Mamre Brook shiraz from a pretty fine vintage. It's a full-bodied, rich number that shows ripe smells of sweet plums, black olives, pepper and anise spices, and toasted cedar on the nose. The palate is plush and juicy, with sumptuous spiced plum flavours, a solid line of savoury tannins, and a tight cedary, toasty finish. It will cellar for at least a decade, but if you can't wait, give it plenty of air and served with roast beef.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dark red.

Nose: This full bodied Shiraz is generous in flavour with notes of savoury black olive complemented with notes of dark berry fruit and savoury spice.

Palate: The palate is elegantly balanced and textural with layers of fine tannins providing the wine a backbone for the lengthy flavours of chocolate, dark cherry and plums.

Cellaring: This wine will gain complexity and interest over the next six to eight years if cellared correctly.

Alcohol: 15%

Saltram Mamre Brook Barossa Valley Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Dense, opaque purple-crimson; makes no bones about its full-bodied power; 'don't mess with me' is the message of its inky black fruits, licorice and tannins. We will never know how good the wine might have been at 14% alcohol, but you can't ignore the consistency of its message.
