A classic Rhone blend - a tribute to the patriarch and founder of Veritas Winery this wine is a testament to Rolf Heinrich Binder and his favourite Barossa Valley varietals.
Fruit for this wine is sourced from various Binder Estate vineyards in different areas of the Barossa. The major component, Shiraz, is a vineyard selection, including some fruit from Eden Valley. The Grenache is grown on the Western Ridge and the Mataro is from dry grown, bush vines planted in the 1880s (the Pressings of which are used in our Bull’s Blood wine).
This wine is a deep red with a dark purple hue. There is a great fruit focus on the bouquet with some oak spices, pepper and Asian spices. On the palate the wine is vibrant, juicy with generous red and black fruits. The tannins in this wine are dense and assertive with a lingering finish of the developed flavours.
Andrew Caillard 2023 – “Deep crimson. Powerful aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, new leather, dark plum with a strong vanillin oak. Blackberry, blackcurrant, fruit pastille and soy flavours, fine loose knit tannins and al dente/graphite textures with generous fruit volume, mid-palate richness and length. Drink now and for a while Drink 2023-2028.”
