2017 Blockhead Shiraz
The 2017 vintage commenced about four weeks later than the previous five, and was coined by many as the ‘old normal’, with the first Shiraz ready on 4th March. Mild temperatures through February provided a steady ramp-up in crushing. The 2017 vintage was preceded by a favourable season in the Barossa that allowed all vineyards to produce both strong yields and high quality, and has delivered some absolute standout wines from pedigree vineyards.
The fruit used to create Blockhead Shiraz was sourced primarily from select family owned vineyards on the black, biscay soils of Central Barossa and the red brown earth of the Northern Barossa Valley.
A plush and slurpy palate bursting with juicy forest berries, fine coating tannins locked intricately together by a delicious vanillin oak undertone. The Blockhead range is characterised by its drinkability and its soft, lush and generous palate.
