Back Vintages


The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz

Shiraz 2014
  • Vintage quality: Good winter and early spring rains were followed by a windy spring that led to an uneven fruit set. Conditions remained dry and warm throughout late spring and summer. On the 14th and 15th of February, the season changed and approximately 100mm of rain fell in just over 24 hours. This rainfall and the following cool weather caused ripening to slow down and the rest of vintage progressed at an almost leisurely pace. A moderate cropping vintage has produced wines with intense flavours combined with some of the best tannin and natural acidity we have seen.
  • Cellar guide: Decant and enjoy now or cellar to 2039.
  • Last tasted: Andrew Caillard
  • Notes: Medium deep crimson. Evolved earthy, wax polish, black berry aromas with roasted walnut notes. Inky deep earthy, blackberry, dark plum fruits, fine supple ripe, touch grippy tannins, attractive mid-palate density, some roasted walnut, chinotto notes. Secondary characters bring a lovely complexity while bottle age gives added volume. Drinking very well now but should continue to develop.
