Back Vintages


The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Shiraz 2017
  • Vintage quality: Spring and early summer temperatures were mild and below average, resulting in long, even ripening. Warm, dry days and cool nights followed from late summer into autumn. These ideal conditions for grape growing allowed us to make optimal picking decisions leading to grapes with purity of fruit balanced with great concentration of flavour.
  • Cellar guide: Will continue to improve in the cellar for 15+ years.
  • Last tasted: August 2022, Kevin Glastonbury, Winemaker
  • Notes: The 2017 The Octavius is medium to full depth reds with purple hues. This has really alluring aromas of spicy perfume, fresh lifted red cherry florals, blue and blackberries and dark plums, completed with cocoa powder and savouriness. Then the palate is so complex with full depth textural concentration and a rich core of blue to black fruits and currants. With smoothly refined tannins, so long and seamless, this will age very reliably.
