Hobbs Gregor Shiraz 2005 750mL

Producer: Hobbs
SKU: 297
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1 day

The fruit for Gregor Shiraz is sourced from Shiraz vines planted in 1988 on our home block high in the Barossa Ranges. The soils are rocky, yellow podzolic matter over clays.

The fruit is handpicked before being placed on racks and semi dried in the style of the famous Amarone wines of Italy. The grapes are then naturally fermented in open vats before being aged in new French Oak 1350L vats and puncheons for a period of 24 months. Bottled unfiltered.

 

Tasting notes: Wonderfully rich textured with a smooth character and good concentration. Complex red fruits with some spiciness. A very interesting wine.

Professional Reviews

96/100
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Gregor Shiraz was made from grapes dried on racks prior to crushing and fermentation in the style of Amarone. More deeply colored than its siblings, it has a liqueur, port-like character to its aromas and flavors. Large in scale and richly fruity, it conceals enough ripe tannin to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink this singular effort from 2015 to 2035.

93/100
Wine Spectator
Rich, ripe and generous with its green olive scented black cherry and licorice flavors that linger on the polished finish, with bright raspberry notes sneaking in at the end.
