Earthworks Barossa Valley Shiraz

Earthworks Barossa Valley Shiraz

Earthworks Barossa Valley Shiraz is vibrant purple with crimson hues. Aromas resembling a compote of dark berries and satsuma plums cleverly supported with mocha, vanilla, and black pepper accents. You might see hints of boysenberry and strawberry, depending on where your senses take you. A polished and voluptuous wine with a soft, round flourish of fresh fruit. The aromas are mirrored by the flavours on the palate which also has dark chocolate undertones. Silky tannins are present only in the background.

South Australia

The Barossa Valley is one of the major regions in Australia, where many of the major wine companies are based. It is believed the first vineyards were planted in the 1840s by Silesian migrants (who settled in Bethany). There followed a rapid expansion of plantations. The early styles of wines produced were heavy dry red wines and fortified wines that were popular both domestically and in Britain. After the Second World War the styles shifted to lighter table wines with production of Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Barossa Valley is home to some very well known names such as Seppelt, Wolf Blass and Penfolds as well as many smaller producers. The climate is Mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, making it ideal for viticulture. The main wine styles: White – Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon-Chardonnay blend; Red – Shiraz (full bodied & ripe) with Old Vine Shiraz a speciality of many vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro blend, Cabernet-Merlot blend.
