2018 Valley Floor Shiraz

DIAM closure

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.

Marked by scents of vanilla and cedar, the 2018 Valley Floor Shiraz boasts enough blackberry and mulberry fruit to easily handle the wood (15% new American oak, with the balance a mix of used French and American barrels). Full-bodied and supple, almost creamy in texture, it's concentrated yet balanced, with a long, mouthwatering finish.

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.

Colour: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.

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

Palate: Rich, sweet and spicy fruit in balance with sofe, velvety tannins. A complex, medium-bodied wine showing hints of mocha, choc-mint and vanilla, which flow through to the lengthy, fruity, peppery and spicy finish.

Cellaring: 2018 – 2028
