$39.99

 

Description

Full depth crimson red. A densely concentrated nose, showing regionally distinctive ripe black fruits and cocoa/dark chocolate, with clove/allspice highlights and cedar and deep vanilla oak in a supporting baritone role. Full-bodied yet softly structured the wine shows ripe berry fruit flavours that contribute to a richly textured mid-palate. Long in the mouth, with finely grained tannins and well integrated stylish oak characters, with restrained acidity closing out the long finish.”

“In 1947, Fred Gramp planted a Moreton Bay fig tree to commemorate 100 years since his grandfather, Johann Gramp established the first commercial vineyard in the Barossa Valley along the banks of Jacob’s Creek. The site was named Centenary Hill. This fine example of Barossa Shiraz is named after this location and today the Moreton Bay Fig still proudly overlooks Jacob’s Creek. This wine has intense plum and spice aromas and flavours and is rich and full in the mouth with deliciously soft tannins. Fantastic with veal, duck, pork, lamb and meat casserole dishes, it also makes a good partner to cheeses at the end of a meal, particularly if the wine is bottle matured a few more years before opening.
