2015 Fifteen Shiraz

Elite Single Vineyards

Back to All

$350 Per Bottle



A single vineyard expression of Shiraz from a vineyard that turned 100 years old in 2015, located on the western ridge of the famous Barossa Valley. Originally planted by the Helbig family in 1915, the vineyard became a very sought after parcel for the Barossa’s leading winemakers. Luckily for the Ashmead family, we were able to acquire this vineyard in late 2010, forever ending the race to get this amazing fruit.

Winemakers Comments

The wine, hailing from the 2015 vintage, is a supreme example of rich and luscious Barossa Shiraz. It was hand picked, fermented in 2 large barrels (around 1500 litres each) and left on skins in these closed vessels for about six weeks. The wine was then pressed and spent a couple of winters in some of our favourite French oak.

95+ points - Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 2017

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Fifteen Shiraz has a profoundly scented nose of crème de cassis, black forest cake, cedar box, Marmite, chargrill and dried mulberries with spicy touches of cinnamon stick, vanilla and cloves. Concentrated, full-bodied and packed with berry preserves and spice flavors, it has a firm backbone of rounded tannins and ample freshness, finishing long with the oak poking through slightly. A behemoth at this primary stage, it really needs some time to marry and show its nuances. Forget it in your cellar for a good 5 years and drink it over the next 20+.
