Viking Wines is one of the smaller enterprises in the heart of Marananga, Barossa Valley. The estate is one of the very few old and biodynamic dry-grown vineyards left in the Barossa Valley. Wines extracted from such grapes produce the full flavour of a true Barossa red, reflecting the distinctive characters of the rich soil and sun-drenched vineyards of the pristine area of Marananga. It's premium red-clay vineyards produce a miniscule 2000 cases per year. The fruit is hand-picked, open fermented, gently basket pressed, followed by maturation in American and French Oak, slowly racked over time, and finally bottled after approximately 24 months.
The black/purple tinted colour of this wine is followed by a pure liquorice and wild berry fruit nose. The palate is very firm in structure with fine powdery tannins, warm, rounded mouth-feel and long, dry finish.
Dark plum in colour ,this wonderful fuse of Grand Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon abounds with intense earthy aromas, followed by a lengthy, warm, palate with delightful floral characters. High in alcohol and fruit, this wine shows ageworthiness and will cellar well for many years. This wine is a true reflection of what was one of our best vintages ever!!
With the Shiraz component being dominant, ultra-ripe blackberry, prune and chocolate flavours finish with reasonable persistence.
Muscular-weight, it is supple and harmonious so there is no surprise that it is approachable now.
A seductive bouquet, showing fresh brambly fruit with a menthol lift. Big, very-fine, dusty tannins need time to integrate but the deep, pure, fruit has enough power to kick through. Liquorice, chocolate and black plum flavours finish with terrific length and persistence. A muscular-weight wine its tight and demands time.
