Lienert Vineyards 'Sieben Klon' Barossa Shiraz 2020

Special Price $40.00 Regular Price $50.00
An exceptional wine, even more powerfully fruited than the 2019. Made by former Penfolds St Henri growers, the Lienert brothers. Each of the 7 distinct clones were harvested and fermented separately with the harvest date chosen to best allow each grape to express its best characters. For instance, the EVOS12 (Eden Valley clone) was harvested earlier than the others to allow for a beautiful perfume and liveliness in the final wine. Fermentation is done in tiny open top fermenters which are hand plunged up to 4 times a day. Certain clones are fermented cooler to better express delicate aromatics whilst some are plunged and pumped over heavily to achieve a more structural element. The trick is finding the right balance. Anyways, we love this wine and encourage you to give it a rip.

The Lienert’s have been farming their patch of dirt in the Western Ridge of the Barossa since 1854. Only the last 21 years have seen them growing vines. They have done pretty well though, with the first two vintages (2004 and 2005) finding their way into Penfold’s St Henri. They promptly planted a heap more vines and these days keep the best parcels for inclusion in this wine. The Seiben-Klon Shiraz clones (German for seven clones) are as follows: 1654 – The mainstay of the Barossa Valley. This brings dark fruits, structure, length and richness Yalumba 2 (La Mouline) – An Hermitage French clone... finesse and elegance EVOS12 - Poonawatta clone – An Eden Valley Shiraz selection... fruitiness and fragrance BVRC12 – A Barossa Selection... red fruits, medium bodied 1127 – A spicy clone offering the highest levels of rotundone (pepper character) in Shiraz... spice, fruit, grippy tannins R6 – Long and big bunches... minerality and bright fruits Sardi 3 – A Mclaren Vale selection... classic McLaren Vale characters and a nice saline edge

Barossa Valley, SA

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.

Shiraz

Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines.

Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper. No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemented with earthy or savory "tertiary" notes such as leather and truffle.

"Secondary" flavor and aroma notes are those associated with several things, generally winemakers' practices (such as oak barrel and yeast regimes).

History

It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, as well as in the rest of Europe,
