Ballerina Canopy 2016 Shiraz - Gapsted Wines

“The wine is full-bodied, firm in tannins and grip; bold, coconutty and straightforward.”

Huon Hooke, Wine Review

"As with many of the most recent releases out of this workhorse winery fruit freshness is to the fore, as indeed is flavour generosity. It tastes of plum, vanilla cream, gum nut and sweet red cherries."

2019 Halliday Wine Companion - 92 Points, Silver

VINEYARD REGION: Heathcote

THE WINE: This wine shows the typical deep red garnet hues of youth. The nose displays distinctive and intense plum and dark cherry aromas, interwoven with hints of white pepper. These aromas follow through to a rich and concentrated palate of plummy fruit flavours. The wine was matured for 18 months in American oak barrels, and has the tannin and fruit structure to age gracefully in bottle for up to eight years from vintage.

FOOD MATCHES: Oven-baked eggplant stuffed with tomato, parsley and fried onion also excellent with roasted venison, with beetroot and balsamic glaze.

PEAK DRINKING: Now-2023
