2017 Rolf Binder Heysen Shiraz Barossa Valley

From: $45.00

2017 Rolf Binder Heysen Shiraz Barossa Valley – The famous Heysen Trail is a 1,200 kilometre hiking trail that passes through some of South Australia’s most diverse and breathtaking landscapes, traversing coastal areas, native bushland, rugged gorges, pine forests and vineyards, as well as rich farmland and historic towns. It also happens to run along the western border of the Rolf Binder ‘Chri-Ro’ estate and the Shiraz vineyard adjacent to it is home to some special vines planted by Rolf and his father in 1972.

The Heysen Shiraz is one of their top Shiraz wines and was first released in 1989. It is made from dry grown Shiraz planted in sandy soils with a varying amount of 1-4% Cabernet Sauvignon, depending on the vintage.

Typically matured in larger format, French puncheon barrels for a more restrained oak treatment, the Heysen is characterised by a velvety texture and more aromatic style.

The nose offers aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, truffle, espresso, black cherry, and blueberry. Ripe, juicy berry and spice flavours with well-rounded tannins and a very good, lengthy finish. A luscious, full-bodied wine that is flavourful and impeccably balanced whilst maintaining a real sense of elegance.

This wine is a classic Barossa Shiraz which will provide pleasure for many years to come.

An excellent cellaring wine with typically 10-15 years ageing potential for optimal drinking.
