Ballerina Canopy 2010 Shiraz - Gapsted Wines

MARCH 2017 TASTING NOTES

Deep red/garnet. Complex bottle age overlaying chocolate and cherry fruit. Subtle cedar oak aromas with hints of tobacco and leather that after decanting release scents of intense strawberry/juniper/cloves and red currants. Savoury and generous entry to the palate.  Layers of cassis, blackberry, dark cocoa and pepper supported with fine finishing acidity and integrated tannins. Still a few years away from middle age and benefits from decanting.  

TASTING NOTES AT TIME OF BOTTLING

VINEYARD REGION: King Valley and Clare Valley

THE WINE: This wine displays a deep red, almost garnet with cherry red hues. The nose shows as spicy, earthy, chocolatey and quite distinctly Shiraz. These aromas deliver ripe, spicy, plum and red berry fruit flavours. Complex and full bodied with sweet vanilla and clove-like oak derived flavours leading to a solid and lengthy backbone of rich, almost viscous, tannin. 

FOOD MATCHES: Fantastic with wholemeal pasta and a rich basil pesto, crusty ciabatta and Camembert, or a good old fashioned rare scotch fillet (with melted garlic butter of course) and freshly hulled steamed broad beans.

PEAK DRINKING: Now-2029

WINE ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol 14.5%  -  PH 3.54  -  TA 6.76
