2014 Gartelmann 'Diedrich' Shiraz
Hunter Valley

2014 Gartelmann 'Diedrich' Shiraz

The 73 year old un-irrigated Shiraz vines are planted on black basalt soil over a limestone base. The Hunter Valley produces lovely round and soft wines. Due to a shortage this year, and for a higher production we married the best fruit from the Hunter and Clare Valleys in our ongoing quest for excellence. A deep vibrant plum colour with an aroma of black cherry, mulberry  and fresh  spices  with  floral  notes.  A  medium  to  full  bodied  majority Hunter Valley style  of  wine showing firm yet velvet tannins layered over flavours of blackcurrants and plum. Well  integrated oak gives the wine structure and great length of palate.

The 46 year old Shiraz vines are planted on black basalt soil over a limestone base. The vineyard is on a slight slope allowing  good drainage and mineral input. The soil type, roots and pruning provided a  canopy requiring no shoot or bunch thinning and thus produced a perfect low crop level. 

Food Matching: Rosemary and garlic marinated lamb rack, aged beef fillet and full flavoured cheese.

Cellaring: Drink from 2016 or cellar to 2022.

Awards & Reviews:
"94 Points, Excellent richness and length. One of those wines that combines (admirably) depth and prettiness. Dark berries, sweet and ripe, meet florals and spice. Perhaps some licorice too. Positively mouthfilling." James Halliday, Halliday 2017
