2021 Henschke Tappa Pass Shiraz Barossa

From: $110.00

2021 Henschke Tappa Pass Shiraz Barossa – The Barossa has a core of traditional growers of German Silesian descent, dating back six generations, staunchly continuing the traditions of their forebears. Occasionally one or two parcels of fruit of overwhelming quality come over the weighbridge; this is such an example. This wine is sourced from up to 70-year-old, low-yielding shiraz vines from a selection of historical grower vineyards at Tappa Pass and Light Pass, growing in low-fertility Neoproterozoic soils more than 542 million years old, that range from red-brown earths to terra rossa. These vineyards provide shiraz fruit from both the Eden and Barossa Valleys of the Barossa zone, vinified in traditional open-top fermenters.

Dark crimson with violet hues. Fragrant aromas of ripe plum, black cherry, blueberries, rose petal, anise, mace, with hints of black pepper, cedar, sage and charcuterie. The palate is rich, plush and complex with blue fruits, mulberry, violets and plum, balanced by layers of fine velvety tannins delivering great depth and length.

Excellent vintage; 20+ years (from vintage).
