About The Wine

You’ll notice the thumbprint on the label of these Tim Smith wines. The thumbprint, to my mind, takes on another level of significance here with the Barossa Shiraz. It’s not just the thumbprint of a top winemaker on show, but that of a region with a long and important history. This is Barossa Shiraz through and through, hold onto your hats ladies and gents…

For this wine, Smith goes to the source of such joy for the Barossa winemaker, the century-plus-old vines of Tanunda, Nurioopta, Kalimna and Lightpass. There’s a little Eden Vallet fruit in the mix also, but the fruit of old Barossa is front and centre here in all its impressive glory.

In short, Smith has knocked the 2014 vintage out of the park. Andrew Graham called it “ripe and ultra smooth Shiraz that is quintessentially Barossan.”

Mike Bennie called it, “… luxurious and pitch perfect as Barossa Shiraz can be.” and finished with “This should be on your 2014 Barossa Shiraz hit list, no doubt.” Campbell Mattinson took it one step further with a huge 96 point review.

At this price and level of quality, this is a rare bird from the 2014 Barossa vintage. Barossa lovers, bring your wheelbarrows.

What It Tastes Like

“Smooth ride here. Rich scents of warm earth, clove spice, liquorice, dark berries. It’s supple, sumptuous but not overly heavy in the palate. Liquid choc-berry, spice and lathed oak rides long and stains the palate. It’s warm without heat, luxurious and pitch perfect as Barossa Shiraz can be. This should be on your 2014 Barossa Shiraz hit list, no doubt.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
