2017 Fifteen Shiraz
Elite Single VineyardsBack to All
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.
Only 1428 bottles produced, with each bottle individually numbered and signed by Cameron and Allister Ashmead.
Also available in a boxed 3-pack.
|Vine Age||100 years old in 2015|

|Region||Greenock, Barossa Valley|
|Maturation||Fermented in a large barrel (1500 litres) and left on skins in this closed vessel for about six weeks. The wine was then pressed and spent a couple of winters in some of our favourite French oak.|
97 points - The Wine Advocate, 12 June 2019, Joe Czerwinski
It's full-bodied, concentrated and rich, densely packed with layers of slowly unfolding flavor, notes of cracked pepper and licorice and hints of mocha on the long finish.
