2016 Laughing Jack The Limited Two Shiraz Barossa Valley – Limited Two Shiraz is a selection of the finest ‘Two Barrels’ producing a mere 800 bottles. The 2016 The Limited Two Shiraz is the fourth bottling in 22 years; it sits alongside the 2004, 2008 & 2010. The fruit was handpicked from a low yielding, dry grown, hillside vineyard with an altitude of 335m. It is located on their original 1855 founded property in the Greenock hills, Barossa Valley.
The grapes were handpicked on the 27th of February, 100% de-stemmed and fully crushed berries transferred into a small 3 tonne open top fermenter. Fermentation and maceration of the skins lasted for 17 days. The ferment was hand plunged twice per day with a rack and return implemented daily.
The bouquet has distinctive perfumed fruits, dark cherry, plum and blackberry alongside cocoa, vanilla and mixed spices. Subtle hints of cedar noticed with some savoury leather notes. Powerful full bodied Shiraz from an outstanding vintage with impeccable balance. Rich, rich, rich concentration of black plum and cherry fruit, dark chocolate, liquorice, ground coffee, pepper and clove spice. The tightest grain French oak has integrated seamlessly with the dense fruit and natural fine grain tannins.
