Barossa Boy Lifeblood Shiraz 2016

From 6th generation winemaker Trent Burge, honouring the region and the variety for which it's renowned. 

Deep set, plum, evocative, richly expressive. Hints of nut, coconut even - not so much swathed or swaddled in oak, but that's there too with its come hither coffee and vanilla ways. Framed, perhaps is how one sees it. 

Thick, rich, upfront fruit presence, before fine - yet firm - tannins sweep across the palate. Has a presence, length, and certainly possess the presence and structure to suggest it will age well. Length is flowing, the gentle ebb of spice across the palate. 94
