Concentration, power, grace. That comes to mind immediately.
About the Wine
This is Fraser McKinley's finest expression of Shiraz from the Hoffmann family's oldest vines on their Dallwitz vineyard. The vines on this historic site were planted between 1888 and 1912.
The final blend is comprised of some 18 barrels. Here, Fraser is looking for his most eloquent expression of this great site with every vintage.
It's rich, it's bountiful, it's made in limited supply. The perfect wine for the Barossa collector who has it all.
Sami-Odi is the labour of love of sommelier-turned-winemaker, Fraser McKinley.
This small batch Shiraz project focuses around the Hoffmann’s ‘Dallwitz’ vineyard in the Barossa Valley. Fraser obsesses over these vines that were planted as far back as 1912.
He caresses the wines to bottle, crafting each cuvee with an incisive mixture of traditional and modern winemaking techniques learnt during his time in the cellars of Torbreck and Standish Wine Co.
Each year, the hunt for these wines amongst collectors becomes more and more feverish. And with good reason, these are transcendent expressions of Barossa Shiraz.
