2015 Geographe Reserve Shiraz

$32.50

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson colour with lifted spicy fruit characters and light peppery flavours. The palate is very generous and soft with the juicy flavours of ripe shiraz. A very easy drinking wine that will continue to develop in bottle over the coming years.

Background

The Geographe region is much younger than Margaret River but features a slightly warmer, drier growing conditions which is perfect for producing vibrant, rich Shiraz wines. The fruit for this wine is sourced from the Barreca family vineyard in Donnybrook. The Barreca family are 5th generation grape growers who take great pride and care in producing us the some of the best shiraz fruit that we have seen in Australia.


The 2015 vintage featured a very warm summer with accelerated ripening towards the time of harvest. The fruit was in great condition with only a small crop providing for great flavour intensity. The colour development was outstanding from day one and apart from dealing with a higher than expected alcohol, the wine always showed good promise.
