Wolf Blass Lyndoch Shiraz 2012 Estates of the Barossa

Grape Variety: Shiraz
In the far south of the Barossa Valley, Lyndoch feature’s the region’s lowest altitude, with the God’s Hill and Lyndoch Valley vineyards from which this wine is sourced, lying on some of the district’s higher peaks at 250 to 300m. Framed by slopes of Barossa Ironstone, the soils show multiple complexities, ranging from red-brown earths to alluvial sediments and fine sands overlying ancient micaceous schists, siltstones, calcitites and quartzites. Lyndoch enjoys the region’s highest rainfall at around 650mm, while the lower elevation results in slightly warmer average temperatures, promoting some of the earliest ripening, with higher levels of humidity contributing to fresh, aromatic flavours. The Lyndoch terroir is known for growing soft perfumed Shiraz with lush fruit and natural elegance.
Harvested at optimum maturity, fruit from individual blocks was crushed separately and fermented in small open-top fermenters. A mix of plunging and gentle pumping over was used to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction, giving the wine rich concentration and depth of fruit while retaining plush, supple tannins. The wines were left on skins until dry to lengthen tannins and enhance palate line and finish.
