The Western Ridge of Barossa is home to a variety of Shiraz clones, each a testament to it’s unique terroir. This 2017 Clone Barossa Shiraz showcases the Shiraz Clone 1127 which was identified in a single vineyard in Marananga. Positioned north to south, the sun penetrates the vine longer during the day on the elevated free draining soils of ironstone over red clay.
This is a deeply coloured example of Barossa Shiraz with silken medium bodied flavours of chocolate, spice and fine grained tannin structure – a lovely drink in the short to medium term.
