Ballandean Generation 3 Shiraz Cabernet 2014

A 6 barrel blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon - 80/20 - from the heralded 2014 vintage that honours the 3 generations of Puglisis that have contributed to what the Ballandean Estate represents today. 

I too am honoured to have been gifted this wine as a wedding gift and drink it shortly after the occasion of 1st anniversary. 

A wine of intensity and depth, new oak lingering long on the nose. It matures in 100% new French oak brrels, is minimally filtered and fined.

Viscous legs allude to the alcohol and intensity of flavour. Black fruit and minerally tannins combine with peanut husk like flavoids, it's a wonderfully harmonious wine, and for all its heft it feels more medium bodied than one might anticipate. 

A incredible depth of flavour that truly represents the contribution of the generations that make this family owned winery what it is. 94
