The Boundary Row range of wines is named after a Barossa tradition of using vine rows rather than fences to distinguish the different owners of adjoining vineyards, with fruit from the boundary row shared between the neighbours.
Vineyard: Selected premium parcels of Shiraz from vines varying in age from 10 to over 100 years were sourced from vineyards in the Light Pass and Vine Vale subregions of the Barossa Valley. The vines receive minimal or no irrigation and are pruned for low yields to provide vine balance, maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics.
Winemaking: This wine is made from selected premium parcels of Barossa Valley Shiraz. The wine was matured in a mixture of seasoned (90%) and new (10%) French and American oak hogsheads for 19 months prior to bottling.
Acidity: 6.2 g/L
Colour: Rich, deep red with purple hues.
Nose: Distinctive red cherry, coffee and aniseed aromas.
Palate: A full flavoured palate of blood plums and cherries with a juiciness and lingering, mouthwatering finish that combines the flavours of cigar box, and chicory with fine- grained tannins that seem to last forever.
Cellaring Potential: Further cellaring will be rewarded although the wine is suitable for current consumption. I highly recommend that this wine be decanted prior to serving.
Food Match: Boundary Row Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried or roasted meats, and full-flavoured dishes.
