Peter Jorgensen Family Private Reserve Barossa Black Shiraz 2016

Description:

This Black Shiraz is full, flavoursome and eminently enjoyable drinking now.

In its youth it displays complex characters with some elegance. A luscious, approachable and very moreish wine, it represents the perfect combination of premium grapes, sophisticated winemaking and decades of experience.

Cellaring Potential

Previous vintages of Black Shiraz, its sister wine, are proving to be timeless, gaining richness and further complexity with in cellar bottle maturation. This wine has the hallmarks to continue in the same tradition. Vintage 2016, after 2 years oak maturation is well balanced and already drinking superbly. It retains some of the vitality of youth whilst starting to deliver the complexity of the winemakers art. Enjoy now or up to 2025. Allow the bottle to breath at room temperature for an hour to bring out the best.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

The appearance is rich dark magenta with an inky opaque core. On the edges it shows deep burgundy with hints of violet and sticky alcohol “legs” on the side of the glass.

Aroma

The initial bouquet captures the essence of youth with some ripe berry fruit sweetness lifted by a hit of alcohol. With time to breath, more complex savoury aromas become obvious with oak, licorice and elegant cool climate characteristics. Cedar wood, vanilla and black pepper add to the mix. It has benchmark Barossa lusciousness with cool leafy herbs and subtle eucalyptus and capsicum notes adding personality.

Palate

On entry the palate shows dark, ripe plums and maraschino cherries. The tannins are firm and gripping giving a solid structure against the sweet, ethereal spirit sweetness. Oak is well integrated showing flavours of ground coffee, olive tapenade and earthy spice. Palate weight is full without being aggressive and has great length from early palate through to the lingering aftertaste. It has the right balance of aging potential and enjoyable drinking now.

Food Matching

During the cool winter months this Shiraz is ideal with slow roasted lamb with a rich gravy, green beans and golden roast potato. Into spring and the warmer months try it with a warm roast beef salad and leafy greens. It has the flavour and tannins to handle a good belt of spice or mustard.
