We've been allocated another 15 six packs of this wine because demand from our member s has been high!!
Each 6 pack contains 2 bottles each of:
2016 UTOPOS Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mataro (RRP$65)
A single vineyard blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 30% Mataro. The fruit was cold soaked for 7 days before fermentation to promote brighter fruit expression and finer tannin integration. Aged in 40% new French oak puncheons for two years before bottling.
Kym Teusner cut his winemaking teeth making GSM blends such as Joshua and Avatar which are benchmarks for the style. What strikes you about this wine is the seamless integration of the three varieties and the fine savoury edge of fruit and oak tannins that make this a faultless expression of Barossa GSM.
2016 UTOPOS Barossa Valley Shiraz (RRP$65)
Cold soaked for 7 days in an open fermenter before a 7-day ferment. Matured in 40% new French hogsheads for two years.
A modern masterpiece of Barossa Valley Shiraz. Gone is the traditional sweetness and flabbiness of ‘big Barossa Shiraz’, replaced by a more athletic and more polished expression of Australia’s classic red wine. Plenty of rich Shiraz fruit, balanced by a fine savoury edge of fruit and oak tannin.
2016 UTOPOS Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (RRP$65)
90% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Shiraz, fermented as separate parcels for 7 days in an open fermenter. Aged for two years in 40% new French oak barriques.
A very powerful statement of the outstanding qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Barossa Valley. A luscious palate of rich, chocolatey fruit and long, fine tannins balanced with an enticing lick of herbaceous sweet red capsicum. Utterly delicious.
