As always, sourced from the Barossa Valley, the 2019 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz features darker fruit tones than the McLaren Vale-based Angel's Share. Blackberries and hints of black olive mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is lined with supple tannins and brambly spice nuances, leading into a softly dusty finish.
Drink Date 2020 - 2024

Source: Winemaker,

Gnarly Dudes is made with fruit sourced from mature vineyards from the Barossa’s western ranges. The palate is filled with rich flavours of spice, black pepper, raspberry, plum and liquorice allsorts.

Colour
Bright crimson with a vibrant purple accented hue.

Aroma
Notes of black cherry, fresh blackberry, fresh lavender, pastry crust, and dark chocolate.

Palate
Hits the palate with vibrancy and pop. Bright berry notes dance across the palate. Medium to full bodied with richness of fruit balanced by bright refreshing acidity. Tannins are prominent but melt beautifully into a wall of fruit. Finished with a lovely long palate, accented by notes of red licorice, lavender, and dark chocolate with a creamy texture from lees contact.

The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in three, five, seven and 10 tonne open top vessels. Regular pump overs three times daily were performed during the peak of fermentation to extract flavours, colour and tannins. At pressing, the free run and pressings were combined to tank, then racked to barrel for oak maturation where malolactic fermentation occurred. All batches were kept separate and blended just prior to bottling.

Maturation
Matured for 12 months in French oak, which 15% was new, and the remainder in one to six year old puncheons and hogsheads.

Cellar Potential
Drinking great now, this wine will cellar for five to ten years, if cellared correctly.
