Full and Rich from the North
Kitts Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
Benjamin and Greg make a great team and have again produced an exciting variation on the theme of a full, rich red from the Northern Barossa.
In any vintage we make a fair bit of Barossa wine but we also buy in wines made by others. The two use these stocks to fit the flavour profiles of each of our brands.
Kitts Creek drains the very top end of the Barossa Valley and this region is higher, hotter and drier than for example the Southern Barossa. Indeed it is surprising the variability that the same varietry displays along the 35 kilometre length of the valley.
Thus they take wines we have sourced from this region to emphasise this difference. Blending the varieties Shiraz and Cabernet has a long history in Australia or should I say South Australia and such blends appeal to us from taste, value for money, and by offering a wide range of variations to customers. Still the Barossa is the Barossa and that taste over-rides varietal blends which become more of a additional complexing factor. This Kitts offers strong value for money.
