Strawbridge 2017 Barossa Shiraz

Strawbridge 2017 Barossa Shiraz

35.00

On the palate this wine is rich and velvety with flavours of wild blackberries and smoky biscuit dough. The tannins are broad, ripe and generous, yet the finish is fresh, lingering and leaves the impression of dark chocolate and rhubarb compote.

Grapes for this Shiraz are sourced from our growers in the Barossa Valley. The well ripened grapes are carefully de-stemmed and crushed to fermenters where they are macerated in a way to minimise extraction of hard tannins. All providing a rich and generous nose and mouthfeel. This is achieved with less vigorous maceration and lower fermentation temperatures.

Enjoy with a thick rib-eye steak and roasted veggies.

The Strawbridge Story

While William Patrick Auld had a famous affinity with his horse Wilberforce, the trusty steed was, naturally, no match for the articulate Eliza Strawbridge. The pair fell in love while WP was working with Eliza’s father at the surveyor general’s office in Adelaide and were married at the magnificent 

Auldana homestead on November 15, 1866. While WP was a rugged explorer and a passionate wine man, Eliza developed a love of poetry and spent her spare time writing with her mother. Like Eliza, the Strawbridge range boasts a certain level of eloquence, an accomplished wine that carries itself with poise and grace. 

Gathering clusters whence ruby streams Will flow before close of day, Ripened and tinged by the sun’s bright gleams Into purple and gold array; Through groves of vine we, laughing come, Gathering fruit for the ‘vintage home’. 

- Eliza Harland Auld
