2015 Kurtz Family Vineyards Shiraz Barossa Valley – The Boundary Row range of wines is named after a Barossa tradition of using vine rows rather than fences to distinguish the different owners of adjoining vineyards, with fruit from the boundary row shared between the neighbours.
Selected premium parcels of Shiraz from vines varying in age from 20 to over 100 years were sourced from four vineyards in the Light Pass and Vine Vale subregions of the Barossa Valley. The vines received minimal or no irrigation and were pruned for low yields to provide vine balance, maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics.
Colour: Bright, rich red with crimson hues.
Nose: A distinctive nose of dark cherry, chocolate and fresh coffee beans, with a complex, savoury earthiness and hints of sage and fennel seed.
Palate: The palate is rich and full, with bright, juicy flavours of mulberry, blackberry and blood plum, with a complexing touch of panforte chocolate and spice. A lingering, mouthwatering finish combines savoury notes of cedar and cigar-box with fine-grained tannins that seem to last forever.
Cellaring Potential: While suitable for current consumption, further medium term cellaring will be rewarded. I highly recommend that this wine be decanted prior to serving.
Food Match: Boundary Row Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried or roasted meats, and full-flavoured dishes.
