2020 Gibson Reserve Shiraz Barossa Valley – Reserve Shiraz is the result of up to 30 individual Shiraz parcel components, which we assess out of barrel for qualities that show particular finesse and structure – the precursors to age-ability. We don’t limit this expression to individual vineyards, but rather build in many layers of complexity through fruit sources from various sites of the Barossa.
One and two tonne open-topped fermenters are used along with other detail-orientated small batch winemaking methods, including hand plunging and basket pressing. The Reserve Shiraz style is led by French oak finesse, with both puncheon and hogshead formats used.
The result is a wine of deep crimson colour, a fine expression of Barossa Shiraz displaying intense aromas of concentrated dark fruits, blood plums and cloves, with hints of nougat. The palate shows richness and power, with lingering layers of concentrated black fruits, chocolate and creamy oak.
