"Our aim in life is to live well, provide for our children, care for the land and hand our winery and vineyards on to the next generation in a better position from when we started” - Robert Schrapel.It goes well with beef casserole,

Feature Wine

Bethany 2014 Creek Shiraz

Tasting Notes

Made from grapes grown on the eastern ridge of the Barossa by the Schrapel Family. This youthful medium bodied wine smells of ripe cherries, florals and plums.

It is a very natural, elegant style with floral cherry characters, blackberries and plums on the palate. The finish is soft with a restrained tannin structure and balanced toasty oak notes.

Food Match

It goes well with beef casserole.

Vineyard Notes

The Shiraz fruit was sourced from the Schrapel family vineyards and neighbouring vineyards in the Barossa foothills. Traditional viticulture practices were applied with the yield from old vines 6.25t/Ha. The vineyards were hand pruned to 70 buds per vine to limit yields.

Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Quite fragrant nose. Berry fruit, touch of allspice and pepper aromas. Complex, savory palate. Quite silky tannins, nice spice and length. Lovely complex silky textured red with this dish and very complementary flavours.

Warren Gibson
Sightly dull at first. Red berry fruits. A nice complex wine with savoury flavours and good length. A good match with the dish. Savoury and sweet combine.

Jo Burzynska
Savoury peppery spice nose. Fragrant and elegant wine with notes of peppery spice, licorice, florals and tightly knit plum and dark berry fruit supported by a fresh lift of acidity. Feels a little lean with the food.

Eugene Mlynczyk
Med ruby. Floral entry, lifted red raspberry, ripe. Dry, round mid palate with light iodine note and coffee-ish oak present. Long finish accented by violets and red fruit.

Robin Kick
Plump with overt sour plums flavours and subtle spice. Some salt liquorice notes as well. Slightly drying tannins on the end. Seems to pair with the wine fairly well though I feel that a dish which would appeal to its darker flavours would have more success.

Sue Bastian
Deep garnet, dark cherry, dusty oak, slight burnt toast. Lots of fruit and spice, firm grainy tannin. Mod persistence. Quite well paired in flavour and weight.

Mark Robertson
Slightly more browns here. Subdued aroma. Planky oak not helped by Eucalypt character that dominates the finish. Grippy as well. Plank and Euca whilst subdued, still dominate this wine.
