Seven Sleepers, or Siebenschlaffer, is named after an old Barossa German farmers’ lore, being that the weather that occurs on 27 June is likely to be prevalent for the next 7 weeks.
Vineyards: All fruit for our Seven Sleepers Shiraz is grown or sourced from vineyards in the Barossa Valley. The vines receive minimal irrigation and are pruned for low yields to provide vine balance and maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics.
Acidity: 6.4 g/L
Colour: Vibrant purple-red.
Nose: A bright, fruit driven wine dominated by plums and raspberries on the nose.
Palate: With juicy blackberry fruits on the palate, this wine is not overpowered by oak, allowing the fruit to show its full potential. Firm tannins give the wine a lingering finish.
Cellaring Potential: A rich combination of sweet mouth filling flavours that is ideally suited to current consumption, but the wine will also improve with further careful cellaring.
Food Match: Seven Sleepers Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried, barbecued or roasted meats, pasta, pizza and other full-flavoured dishes.
