The Colonial Estate Explorateur Shiraz 2006
The Barossa Valley is a store of old vines coupled with an extended number of grape varieties that produce ripe, fruity, modern wines. Classic ripe Shiraz that is handpicked from old Shiraz Vines based in the north of the Barossa Valley. The grapes are double-sorted - by bunch and then by grape - on arrival at the winery and, after fermentation, aged in French and American oak for a year. Purple in colour with a round, enveloping taste.

Wine SpectatorLush in texture, but subtle in flavor, with black olive and meat notes adding interest to the dark berry and licorice flavors, lingering with finesse on the silky finish. Drink now through 2016.
