Last Stocks from Great Vintage
Glug 'The Patsy' Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2015
Region: Barossa Valley
The last stocks of our 2015 reds are being bottled and ‘The Patsy’ was a special bottling to celebrate Barossa pioneers who specialised in blending Shiraz and Cabernet. Many companies in the 1950-1970s made these blends though as customers discovered table wines, they preferred single varieties, so the practise died out.
Yalumba has been the major house to continue, with the Signature series, which pays tribute to employees. Both varieties make superb wines in the Barossa Valley and since it is such an obvious blend perhaps a revival will happen.
The Patsy was one of several wines taken from oak and bottled in late March, 2020 to clear space for the new vintage which is currently fermenting. A full rich wine, new in bottle so it still has a long life ahead.
