Ubertas Project D Shiraz 2017

Ubertas is the family owned and operated winery of Sung-Po Liu, who emigrated to Australia in 2007 after running a series of tech businesses across China and Taiwan. Sons, Phil and Kevin found great interest in the wine industry and after completing master degrees - in marketing and oenology respectively. - took on running the business. Project D being their dry grown Shiraz, from declared Old Vines.

Mulberry, Plum, kiss of oak - just an accent to the fruit. It's deep, touch of that earthen character in quality - and old Vine - Barossan Shiraz. 

A well made wine should possess inherent balance, clocking in at 15% you'd barely know it with this, that blue/black fruit mix reasserting its authority. 

Incredible depth, and persistence of flavour here. Tannin is fine, seemingly an afterthought to the wine's substantive presence. 92
