Campbells Bobby Burns Shiraz (Rutherglen) 2017
Deep, rich red. The nose is full and lifted, brimming with dark berries and plum fruit. A hint of light oak char sits in the background.
This wine is full bodied with powerful characters of dark berries and ripe plum fruit, beautifully balanced with layers of fine, dry tannin and complementary notes of liquorice, ironstone and spice. A wonderful vintage that is drinking well in its youth but destined to reward careful cellaring.
After fermentation on skins for six to seven days using closed and rotary fermenters, the wine was subsequently aged for a period of 12 months in a mixture of new to three year old premium French and American barrels.
The favourable 2017 growing season has produced a Bobbie Burns Shiraz with incredible depth and concentration of fruit flavours. Our long history with this wine suggests it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 10-12 years. Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.
