GISA ARC Barossa Shiraz was made from fruit off the Rohrlach vineyard near Williamstown in the Barossa Valley.
The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed, gently pressed, then transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tank where the wine underwent a temperature controlled fermentation. It reached a maximum of 26 degrees.
Whilst a bit closed at the moment, 2019 was a good vintage. The wine benefits from a little air immediately after opening.
The 2K19 GISA ARC Barossa Shiraz is a rich full flavoured wine with good intensity & power. It is medium bodied wine with generous, ripe fruit flavours, of blue berries, plum, black currant & liquorice.
There are hints of vanilla bean and coconut derived from the American Oak with the balance in older French oak 60/40.
True to its roots, it is a ripe, rich, full flavoured Barossa Shiraz. History will tell this will be a good vintage.
