Rolf Binder Shiraz

Rolf Binder Barossa Shiraz 2017

Barossa Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
A collection of five Barossa Valley Shiraz vineyards contribute varying characteristics of fruit to this 2017 Rolf Binder Barossa Shiraz. The Shiraz makes up only 90% of the final blend, with juicy confectionary and red cherries hailing from a very small percentage of Grenache and estate-grown Mataro, offering a deep, earthy background on the palate.

This deep blood red wine fills the glass with aromas reminiscent of rich red berries and dark bitter chocolate. Dark cherries enhanced with cassis, anise and pepper mingle on the medium to full bodied palate. Creamy tannins and complex acidity lends to the overall perception of a smooth, rich red wine, with a nice persistence of flavour. This is an approachable, flavoursome Barossa Shiraz that's true to the region and ready to be enjoyed now.

Rolf Heinrich Binder and his wife, Franziska, arrived in Australia (from Austria and Hungary respectively) in 1950 as part of the large influx of post war immigration to Australia. As payment for the government assistance, they worked with the South Australian railways for three years.

During that time they met Elmore Schulz, a train driver and grape grower in the Barossa Valley, and namesake to neighbouring Barossa Valley Estate's E&E Shiraz. While picking grapes in the Barossa in 1953, the couple met Langmeil Road winemakers, Chris Vohrer and Wilhelm Abel.

This meeting proved to set their future. In 1954 they worked a vintage in this winery and subsequently purchased the business in 1955, renaming it 'Veritas', taken from the Latin quote "In Vino Veritas" - in wine there is truth.

The business name was changed from Veritas to Rolf Binder in 2005 to honour the late Rolf Heinrich Binder who passed away in 2003.

A collection of five Barossa Valley Shiraz vineyards contribute varying characteristics of fruit to this wine. To this we have added some Shiraz base from our winery stalwarts, the Christa Rolf and the Heinrich. The Shiraz makes up only 90% of the final blend, with juicy confectionary and red cherries hailing from a very small percentage of Grenache and estate-grown Mataro, offering a deep, earthy background on the palate. Twelve months maturation in a mixture of new American oak barrels as wells as two-year old American and shaved French barrels.

This deep blood red wine fills the glass with aromas reminiscent of rich red berries and dark bitter chocolate. Dark cherries enhanced with cassis, anise and pepper mingle on the medium to full bodied palate. Creamy tannins and complex acidity lends to the overall perception of a smooth, rich red wine, with a nice persistence of flavour. Rolf Binder
