2018 Valley Floor Shiraz 6 pack

Wine Club discount applies

The Barossa is famous for its viticulture, history and winemaking dating back to the 1840s. At its heart is the Valley Floor, a highly-prized strip of prime viticultural land which is the very foundation and forms the essence of this wine. A true taste of the Barossa.

Deep, dense red/purple colour. The bouquet is slightly muted but there's mocha and char-oak there, the palate full-bodied but not over the top, the focus tight. Oak is quite present but not overdone, the tannins earthy and graphite-like, almost tarry. A classic Barossa style of shiraz. And excellent value. Huon Hooke 92 Points

Wine Profile

Local knowledge has helped us select and secure prized Shiraz across the breadth and depth of the Barossa while retaining the foundation fruit from the Valley Floor. The combination of hands-on winemaking and vineyard diversity results in pure Barossa Shiraz.  This is why the Valley Floor Shiraz has received the Barossa Trust Mark.

Aroma:  A rich and lifted aroma of Satsuma plum, mulberry and florals mingle with sweet spice, chocolate and savoury notes.

Palate:  Rich, plumy fruit and sweet spice balances with soft, velvety tannins. A complex, medium to full bodied wine showing hints of mocha, bramble and vanilla which flow through to the lengthy, fruitful, peppery and spicy finish.

Cellaring:  2020-2030

Food match:  Stir-fried beef with basil; American style slow cooked ribs; Sunday roast; mature cheddar.
