2022 Agricola Flaxman Valley Shiraz Barossa Valley

From: $72.00

2022 Agricola Flaxman Valley Shiraz Barossa Valley – The Powell family have been making award winning wines in the Barossa for decades. Now son Callum has released his on Barossa label. These wines are totally different to your usual big, bold reds of the Barrosa – lower alcohol, lo-fi, pure and elegant.

This release sees 4 wines in the range – Ebenezer, Flaxman Valley, Kalimna Sands and Theel’s Handfibel. All wines spent 12 months in oak, with less than 10% of it being new oak. Flaxman and Kalimna tend to be in larger puncheons and demi-muid while Ebenezer and Theel’s Handfibel for the most part have been aged in barriques 225L. All wild fermented with no adds aside from some sulfur late in the process. Everything is 100% whole bunch and ferments for 3-4 weeks.

The first thing you notice is the alcohol level of 13.2%. But don’t fear there is still plenty of flavour and character to be had. Definitely more of a Syrah style. Dark fruits, pepper and savoury goodness. A fair whack of herbs too. The tannins are so fine and interwoven. So fresh and elegant. Ready to rock and will improve if kept open for a night or two. So different, so good.
