Back Vintages

Barossa

The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Shiraz 2001
  • Vintage quality: A near perfect growing seasons thanks to ideal winter and spring rains followed by a warm dry ripening period.
  • Cellar guide: 8-12 Years
  • Last tasted: June 2003, Kevin Glastonbury, Winemaker
  • Notes: Concentrated, dense plum-purple in colour, The Octavius 2001 smells of violets, forest fruits, warm spices and rich plums, all with a slightly funky edge and a good measure of dense, chocolatey, smoky oak. The palate is full bodied with wonderful concentration and length. Mulberry, violets, plum and cherry fruits integrate with lashings of thick assertive tannins, surrounding an almost creamy mid palate. A very stylish and quite exceptional wine. Awards and Accolades: 1 Gold
