THE BAROSSA HAS DEVELOPED A REPUTATION FOR SHIRAZ WITH INTENSE FRUIT CHARACTERS AND RICH, CONCENTRATED PALATES. GOLD LABEL BALANCES THESE FLAVOURS WITH ELEGANT FRENCH OAK TO PRODUCE A REFINED, TEXTURAL SHIRAZ WITH BRIGHT, FRAGRANT FRUIT. 

Shiraz was sourced predominantly from low-yielding vineyards across the Barossa Valley floor, which provide intensity and rich, bright fruit character. This was supplemented by cooler climate Eden Valley fruit contributing fragrance, elegance and subtle spicy notes. Following crushing, individual vineyard batches were fermented in small open fermenters with a mix of plunging and pumping-over applied to allow optimum release of colour and flavour without excessive extraction of tannin.

VINEYARD REGION  Barossa 
VINTAGE CONDITIONS  Good winter rains and an early burst of spring warmth resulted in healthy vines, with windy conditions during flowering reducing yields. The combination of low crops and mild conditions during ripening resulted in exceptional quality with bright, varietal fruit characters, great intensity of colour and excellent natural acidity the hallmarks of the vintage. 
GRAPE VARIETY Shiraz 
MATURATION  15 months maturation in seasoned and new French oak has enhanced structure and complexity. 
WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 14.5%  Acidity: 6.8 g/L  pH: 3.53 
PEAK DRINKING  Enjoyable on release or will develop complex, integrated flavours with six to eight years careful cellaring. 
FOOD MATCH Great with roast beef with caramelised onion marmalade, sizzling Mongolian lamb or seared kangaroo fillet with beetroot relish.

COLOUR Deep crimson red with purple highlights.    NOSE Intense aromas of blueberries, blackberries and blood-plums are layered with underlying dark chocolate, freshly ground coffee and roasted chicory, with a slight perfumed lift and fragrant star anise spice. 
PALATE Richly textured, round and plush with a full, yet elegant palate of bright, fleshy blood-plum and juicy berry flavours. Subtle French oak supports a fine acid structure and long silky tannins, resulting in a harmonious, mouth watering palate with a long, seamless finish.
