Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz

Soldiers Block Shiraz – Delicate red fruit and herbal aromas open up to a palate of ripe mulberry and plum fruit. the fine grained tannin and vanilla from the oak, work in balance to deliver a wine of poise and elegance.

Soldiers Block Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 – 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process – a sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.

Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.

Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses

16 Stops Shiraz

16 Stops Shiraz – This deep coloured Shiraz is youthful and vibrant, with a lovely dark fruit and spiced plum character on the nose. The oak supports rather than masks the fruit, which is bright and lively yet plush and fleshy on the palate. The tannins are ripe and silky, giving the wine a texture that is unusual at this price.

The grapes are selected from multiple vineyard sites in South Australia, with much of the blend coming from vineyards around the Willunga district. The vines are mainly planted with a north-south row orientation, primarily with clone 1654. This is the clone widely regarded as producing the best Shiraz in the McLaren Vale region. The vines are mainly hand pruned.

The 16 Stops wines are made at the Willunga 100 winery under the watchful eye of consultant winemaker Tim James, with much of the fruit sourced from the same vineyards. The wines blend the fruit from the McLaren Vale with that of the Adelaide Hills to combine the best of both areas, with riper flavours from the McLaren Vale, and fresh, mineral notes from the Adelaide Hills.

The name 16 Stops comes from the number of stops on the railway line from Adelaide to the Vineyard.

WINEMAKER COMMENTS Summer was dry and warm leading up to Christmas, resulting in a vintage that was two weeks earlier than average. These conditions meant that the vines were able to ripen the grapes seamlessly, producing an abundance of flavour. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation, and also 3 – 5 days post fermentation has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build solid wine structure.
TASTING NOTES Deep crimson purple in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of dark, ripe cherries, Christmas pudding, Indian spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and ripe and embodies a classic South Australian Shiraz, with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake, surrounded by soft, juicy, ripe tannins.
This wine drinks perfectly with whole roast suckling pig; or shallot pancakes with black vinegar dipping sauce.
