2010 The Darkie
Shiraz

$80.00

Special museum release of 100% Barossa Shiraz from low yielding old vines. Seductive concentrated flavours linger long after the first sip. A classic fruit-driven style with beautiful balance and amazing complexity.

A flagship wine dedicated to Ron's uncle Clarence Walter 'Darkie' Liebich (1920-1988) who encouraged Ron's winemaking abilities. He planted the 40 acre block on heavy biscay soil on the eastern foothills of the Barossa Ranges in 1969. The vines receive minimal attention and allow nature to do the work.

Vintage 2010 was a very good season with moderate yield of 2.2 tonne/acre. Traditional techniques of hand plunging and basket-pressing with no fining or filtration all enhance flavour. This special museum release has matured over five years in various aged American and French hogsheads, producing a multi-layered wine.

A dark brooding wine full of black cherries and chocolate mingled with sweet spiced vanilla. Amazingly complex concentrated flavours linger long after the first sip. All this is perfectly balanced with the subtle oak maturation and super silky tannins.

Exceptional drinking now and excellent cellaring potential.
