Wine making notes

Barossa Valley has a global reputation for producing some of the world's greatest Shiraz.  The Artisan Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017 is an extraordinary example of how exceptional Barossa and Shiraz can be.  It was hand picked from vines around 130 years old from a single vineyard. It was crushed and destemmed before an open ferment with a cultured yeast. 8 days on skins via tank to barrel for 18 months being 43% new French oak and 57% older American and French oak. This wine shows all the hallmarks of an excellent vintage. 

Colour

Deep red with a vibrant purple hue.

Nose

Alluring aromas of oaky spices.

Palate

The palate is rich and complex with a classy array of berry fruit characters making this a complete wine. This is a powerful wine delivered in a silky smooth package. Cellar potential of 10+ years.

Reviews

95 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Powerful and gloriously expressed, the bouquet shows black and purple fruit notes with attractive vanilla, chocolate, roasted beet and cedary oak characters. The palate is concentrated and velvety with lavish mouthfeel and silky tannins, finishing impressively long and sumptuous. At its best: now to 2027.

94 points - Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Dense purple red with aromas of dark berry fruits, smoky oak, cedar and spice. All in a very complex package, the power of the bouquet hides the 15.5 % alcohol of this wine. Complex, balanced and full you will find silky tannins, along with full berry fruits, spice and beautifully balanced acid. You could enjoy this now but age for 7+ years to get the best.

92 points – Patrick Eckel, Wine Reviewer  A glossy deep red in the glass with a nose that combines initially reductive plum and blackberry fruit that is backed by cedar and touches of chocolate and spice.  The wine carries it’s 15.5% well with a dense but well proportioned palate that has a tannin and acid profile that is commensurate to the layers of primary fruits; sweetened cocoa gives richness to the mid palate with the finish brimming with black fruits and generosity of oak.  Will be bound to cellar well. Optimal Drinking 2019 – 2032.

91 points (4 Stars) - Huon Hooke  Deepish, dark, slightly black-ish colour, with a coconutty oak-driven bouquet. The wine is again coconutty to taste, loaded with lactoney new oak, which dominates now but the wine needs time and will surely turn into an excellent drop. It just needs time: it certainly has the weight and concentration to carry that level of oak in the long run. Cellaring is a must! Drink 2021 to 2034.
