Balgownie Black Label Shiraz 2014
Bendigo
Available by the dozen
The Balgownie experience with Shiraz dates back to 1969, when the original vines were established on a carefully selected site at Maiden Gully near Bendigo. A backbone of local, estate grown Shiraz is vinified alongside components from superior Victorian vineyards. The sturdy tannins and powerful ripe fruit flavours of Bendigo are enhanced by the spiced acidity and lighter plum character of terroirs further afield. A dash of Viognier contributes suppleness, alluring perfumes and a touch of apricot sweetness.

Balgownie's Bendigo property was originally planted by local pharmacist Stuart Anderson in 1969. The initial plantings consisted of five acres each Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, they remain the mainstay until today. The vineyard is planted on alluvial clay soils that are low in fertility but provide good moisture retention. These soils naturally limit yields and produce grapes with depth and intensity. Traditional open concrete fermenters are employed to ensure a gentle extraction of colour and tannins. A portion of the wine remains on skins to macerate, building palate structure and firming up the tannins. The final wine is treated to an extended maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques.
 
Deep red purple in colour. Bouquet displays lifted blackberry fruit with tobacco leaf aromas and cedar oak. The palate exhibits concentrated blueberry and blackcurrant flavours, violets, dutch chocolate and cassis, backed by fine persistent tannins and supple, fragrant vanilla/ cedar oak characters which support the fruit and provide solid structure. The defining characteristics of Balgownie are elegance, balance and intensity.

The hand husbanded, hand picked vines on Block 6 were planted in 1998 and are a different clone to the original Shiraz stock. Vinified in traditional open fermenters, hand plunged and aged in French oak barriques for twenty two months, bottled unfined after minimal filtration. Alcohol 13.5%
