BOBBIE BURNS SHIRAZ 2017
A Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality. This 48th vintage is a fine example of the style we seek for our Bobbie Burns Shiraz. - Colin Campbell
COLOUR
Deep, rich red.
BOUQUET
The nose is full and lifted, brimming with dark berries and plum fruit. A hint of light oak char sits in the background.
PALATE
This wine is full bodied with powerful characters of dark berries and ripe plum fruit, beautifully balanced with layers of fine, dry tannin and complementary notes of liquorice, ironstone and spice. A wonderful vintage that is drinking well in its youth but destined to reward careful cellaring.


Viticulture

Shiraz from our “Bobbie Burns” vineyard in Rutherglen.


Vinification

After fermentation on skins for six to seven days using closed and rotary
fermenters, the wine was subsequently aged for a period of 12 months in
a mixture of new to three year old premium French and American barrels.
