The 2012 growing season was long and mild, escaping the heat spikes associated with some vintages in the Barossa Valley. Two rain events during harvest, extended the growing season for the later ripening Shiraz vineyards as well as the Grenache and Mourvedre. The conditions proved ideal for Shiraz, allowing a great balance between ripe flavours and varietal spice. Grenache and Mourvedre responded to the conditions by producing bright aromatic wines.
The 2012 BBR is an aromatic and subtly structured wine with Shiraz providing a backbone of solid tannins and luscious depth of flavour. Grenache provides a dash of spice and cherry sweetness, taming the Shiraz beautifully whilst Mourvedre adds extra layers to the tannins and a little funk and fragrance.
