Harmony Shiraz 2014
A new Shiraz from Bill in the style of the old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz. While stylistically typical for the region and grape variety Harmony offers concentration and complexity over and above what might normally be expected.
Harmony Shiraz is a very intense ruby red color with purple hues. The nose offers concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, plum and subtle clove spices.
Powerful and full bodied with juicy blackcurrant and plum flavors forming the base of the palate, with blueberry, clove, vanilla and chocolate complexities all emerging as Harmony evolves on the tongue.
The tannins are nicely approachable, with good acidity offering potential for further bottle aging too. Lingering with notes of blackcurrant and spice,Harmony is as extraordinarily long as it is concentrated.

With three separate Shiraz / Syrah vineyards we decided to make a pure Shiraz, blending fruit from all three vineyards. The hillside vineyards contribute power, the valley vineyards contribute smooth subtle flavors while the more gentle graded vineyards provide complexity.
Our blending goal was to produce an elegant, harmonious and balanced Barossa style Shiraz. Taken with food or alone you will see why we called it Harmony.
