2022 The Willows Vineyard G Seven Shiraz Barossa Valley – Fruit for this wine is sourced from the Back Block 2004 planting. The soil on the Back Block is quite different to that found on their lower lying blocks, highlighting the diversity of soil types across their vineyard site. Predominantly sandy loam over mottled red and yellow clay, strongly influenced by a vein of heavier textured ironstone. The combination of this soil type and the Shiraz clone 1654 produces wines with intensity of flavour and age-worthy structure.
The wine immediately shows bright, lifted aromatics of raspberry, blackberry, violet florals and black pepper spice. The palate is vibrant and expressive, all about primary fruit. The mix of red and black fruits is accompanied by a bright line of acid and a soft, powdery tannin profile. There is a `mineralic` feel that runs the length of the palate with the wine showing great poise and balance.
