Shiraz - 2016

2016 Shiraz

undefined  undefined

14.0% Alcohol ~ Screw Cap Closure ~ Enjoy Now to 2028/2032

This Estate release is defined by dark cherry and plum fruits that sit most satisfyingly alongside savoury, spice and black pepper notes.
Earthy, chewy tannins will cut through the fat of a rare sirloin steak or lamb roast if enjoying your Tahbilk 2016 Shiraz now (and believe me it is
enjoyable!), and equally provide the support for further cellaring should you be looking for added complexity.

“Here’s to a good-value 14.0 per cent alcohol Shiraz that would team well with veal cutlets. It’s purple-tinted crimson and has potpourri scents and juicy plum front-palate flavour. The middle palate shows glacé cherry, licorice and nutty oak and the finish earthy tannins.”
John Lewis | Newcastle Herald

“Firm full flavoured wine with nice ripe dark red fruit characters and oak in the background”
Winestate Magazine

“Sourced from 30ha of estate vines, and matured for 18 months in both large and small predominantly French barrels for 18 months. Given the compressed vintage with everything ripening at the same time - and early - keeping track of fruit development was no easy task. This is one of the most elegant and fresh shirazs yet produced by Tahbilk, all the right decisions made in the vineyards and winery. A typical touch of Tahbilk earth wends its way through the plum and blackberry fruit of a wine that has long since proved its longevity, more recently protected by its screwcap and with no need for time to allow the tannins to soften."
James Halliday | www.winecompanion.com.au

"This is the juiciest Tahbilk Shiraz I’ve had in years – it’s all plump jubey purple fruit, though with a decent dose of Tahbilk earth and complete with light tannins. Quite a departure from the traditionally rustic style but a rather pleasant and jubey red.
Tahbilk Shiraz does modern (and with a swish polish).”

Tahbilk Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are crafted with a commitment to traditional winemaking values.
Fermentation takes place in original open oak vats (over 155 years old), followed by maturation in similarly aged large French oak barrels prior to being bottled. Smaller French and American oak barrels are also used, with the wine from these blended back during the final filtering and bottling.
In the face of changing winemaking styles and trends, this has remained the way over the years, delivering wines of true provenance and reflective of each vintage.
A dry growing season for the 2016 vintage, with the exception of a massive thunderstorm in January that dumped 86mm in just two hours, led to early ripening of all varietals and a quick harvest. Despite this challenge in processing the fruit, all reds were picked at optimum ripeness showing juicy, bright fruits and an underlying elegance.
