7 Gold, 1 Silver
A great match for lamb, perhaps roasted and stuffed or studded with herbs, garlic and pancetta.
French and American oak barrels (new and seasoned).
Barossa blood red with a purple hue.
Super blackberries and pure unadulterated 90% Cocoa chocolate. Black plums, macerated raspberry with hints of cracked pepper and brambly spice.
Entry: Generous dark fruits, like mulberries and boysenberries. A full and frank Shiraz start. Middle Palate: Classic Barossa. Generous, flavoursome with sweet blackberry pie and dark, dry cocoa mouth feel. After Palate: Begins with sweet berry fruit then tightens up with fine fruit and oak tannin. Sweet Christmas spice cuts through the hints of jamminess. Finish: Youthful austerity as you would expect from such a classic, old-school Shiraz. There is plenty of finesse to the tannin and dark chocolate nuances in the lengthy finish.
The fruit for the Baron Von Nemesis is sourced from hand tended blocks in the Eden Valley sub-region of the Barossa. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to 12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
