2016 Tintara Shiraz
Vintage 2016 proved to be quite unique with high quality fruit being delivered to the winery with well above average yields. Cool winter and warm spring was preceded by a late rainfall event that boosted vine growth and refreshed soils. Closer to harvest bumper crops were aided into ripening by mild-summer temperatures and sporadic rain.
A full bodied wine bursting with fresh and vibrant fruit flavours of blood plums and dark berries, aniseed and chocolate. Hints of peat, black olive and coffee bean blend well with sweet vanillin oak to add complexity. A subtle texture and an abundance of fine, velvety tannins round out this well balanced wine.
