Intense and Full Bodied
Glug 'The Accord' Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2015
Region: Barossa Valley
The blending of Shiraz and Cabernet in our warm climate regions such as the Barossa Valley goes back to the 1940s.
It makes less sense in cooler regions as the divergence between the flavours grows and the varieties are no longer comfortable together. In this way it was natural that Benjamin and Greg began Trials of the two varieties back in 2016. This blend began as Trial Bin 5632 and because it clicked has been released as The Accord or a coming together.
Recall in a wine like this we follow tradition meaning we wanted to create a full bodied red with ripe flavours. The more we see of the 2015 vintage the better it looks so this wine will improve in a cool storage place.
The wine was bottled a few months ago and the quantity made was 50 cases.
