The 2005 Shiraz 'Roennfeldt Road Zippy's Block' is sourced from one of the premier addresses in the Barossa and this wine shows why. It has a profound perfume of smoky, toasty oak, pencil lead, violets, leather, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a shockingly elegant yet large-scaled Shiraz with a velvety-texture, layer upon layer of spicy blue and black fruits, beautiful harmony, and a 60+ second finish. Words can hardly do it justice. While it can be enjoyed now, you can bury it in the cellar, revisit it in 20-25 years, and it will still be mind-bogglingly hedonistic.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2002-3.0L

A rich, vibrant crimson in colour. Fantastic aroma, sweet raspberry and plum fruits, seamless oak with hints of vanilla bean. A luscious mouthfeel, complex and intense with dark liquorice and concentrated berry flavours, pencil shavings and fertile earth. The tannins are huge, but present with softness whilst the finish lingers on and on.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-3L

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential.

 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.
