MERLOT + SHIRAZ - 2015
BAROSSA VALLEY, AUSTRALIA
Opulent dark fruit, balsamic glaze and black olive all with balanced acidity. Wonderful.
A Barossa native, Tom studied agriculture before moving to Italy and spending 6 years working for Sean O’Callaghan at Riecine in Chianti Classico. In 2007 he returned to Australia and introduced the Barossa Valley to biodynamic, low intervention, natural winemaking - total anathema at that time. Tom farms his own iron-rich land biodyamically in the cool microclimate of Seppeltsfield, as well as buying fruit from other local organic growers when he deems it good enough.
