Hobbs-Gregor-Shiraz-2003-750mL

The fruit for Gregor Shiraz is sourced from Shiraz vines planted in 1988 on our home block high in the Barossa Ranges. The soils are rocky, yellow podzolic matter over clays.

The fruit is handpicked before being placed on racks and semi dried in the style of the famous Amarone wines of Italy. The grapes are then naturally fermented in open vats before being aged in new French Oak 1350L vats and puncheons for a period of 24 months. Bottled unfiltered.

 

Tasting notes: Sweet, open, herb-tinged red fruits on the nose. Sweet and beguiling. The palate is smooth and supple with an interesting herb-like sweetness. Soft finish.

97/100
Wine Spectator
Packs an amazing amount of rich, ripe wild blackberry, red plum, raspberry and blueberry flavor into a lithe package that seduces with its suppleness and relative refinement for the size of the wine. Has creamy coffee and exotic spice notes flitting through the finish as it rolls on and on.

96/100
The Wine Advocate
Made from yields of two tons of fruit per acre, and aged two years in both new and old French oak, the 2003 Shiraz Gregor (from 16-year-old vines) possesses a roasted/scorched earth character as some of the fruit is dried a la Amarone. Rich and full-bodied, with a broodingly dense, concentrated style, an inky/blue/purple color, fabulous length as well as intensity, and riveting fruit.
