Allegiance Wines 'The Artisan' Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

$60.00
A rich and inviting perfume on the nose, with red fruits, coffee, black fruits, pepper, and clove all in evidence. The palate is rich, big, smooth, and intense and the wine finishes with plush silken tannins. Good already and has the legs to stay out in front for another decade.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
