2008 Bartondale Late Harvest Dessert Shiraz

2008 Bartondale Late Harvest Dessert Shiraz


A portion of the Shiraz from Churchview estate Block 33 were late harvested when the berries were shrivelled and sultana like. hand picking of the grapes resulted in a crop with intense, rich,fruit cake flavours. Fermentation was allowed to proceed in the winery, until we decided to stop fermentation by the addition of 10 year old brandy spirit. Maturation in old oak barrels softened the tannins and allowed the spirit to integrate into the wine.

As this is a vintage style port, leave a bottle or two to age and see the youthful exuberance of our young port develop into a mature, richly intense and complex wine. Drink now or cellar for 20+ years.

Colour : Deep intense red

Aroma : Intense aromas of blackcurrent, plum, brown sugar, clove, nutmeg and malt are well integrated with the fine brandy used in the fortification

Palate : A small taste is all that is required to obtain the rich intensity of the nectar, chocolate, dark fruitcake and brandy overtones. The mid palate is surprisingly dry with spicy notes. The finish is unique with powerful flavours and soft sweetness

Analysis : pH 3.70 TA 6.2g/l Alc 19.0% RS 52.3g/l
