Goat Square 'Ziegenmarkt' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017
Finally the 2017 Ziegenmarkt is in bottle and ready to add to your collection.
The first Goat Square Shiraz was 2006 and the 2017 is the twelfth vintage though it was not till the 2013 vintage that the first Ziegenmarkt appeared.
While the grapes are handled the same way in the winery in any vintage local parts of most vineyards just produce grapes which have better flavours. Often this is replicated in the vineyard year after year but not all the time.
Then wines evolve differently in barrel, so you wait for a year or so before isolating the most promising barrels for further attention.
In this way the Ziegenmarkt is born.
