Blue Quarry

Blue Quarry Shiraz 2017

Award Winner

Sourced from selected parcels of Shiraz within the Bethany village that demonstrate great power, elegance and complexity, this Shiraz is an embodiment of the character and personality that is possible from this unique village in the Barossa Valley. 



A bouquet that is redolent of black cherries, blackberries and clove spice leads to a palate that shows a supple and intense swathe of black fruits tempered by savoury spice elements and structured tannins that give great length and balance. The winter and spring of 2016 were wet and even December was wetter than average. The growing season for the 2017 vintages was cool (December) or average (January) with brief periods of rain in January to keep the vines refreshed. 2017 was a balanced, cooler vintage in the Barossa with a long ripening period which led to reds developing exceptional colour and tannic framework along with a deep fruit profile and aromatic intensity.
