2020 Poplar Holme Shiraz

2020 Poplar Holme Shiraz

Leading into both the 2019 and 2020 vintages, our winemaking team set out in search of vineyards from which to create new expressions of our distinct Barossa Valley red wine style. A series of trial batch wines were made. Those not meeting our strict style and quality benchmarks were sold as bulk wine to other wineries. Some were blended to produce a multi sub-regional Barossa Valley Shiraz. A very few stand out parcels of wine were reserved to be sold exclusively to our loyal Marananga Village newsletter subscribers. This is one such wine. 'Poplar Holme' was the name given to the 'Roennfeldt' family homestead, built when they emigrated to the Barossa Valley in the latter half of the 19th century. It remains the name of the vineyard from where this Shiraz was sourced. Planted close by our own Marananga vineyards in 1963, the red/ brown loam soils riddled with clay are the perfect foundation for producing lush, full-flavoured red wines. This is a Barossa Valley Shiraz made by Greenock Creek that tastes as you would expect it to be. Layers of plums, black cherries and seductive, silky tannins framed by wax candle and exotic spices from new French Oak maturation. A wine to be enjoyed when young, or matured for 10-15 years. Approximately 1,200 bottles produced.
