Balgownie Estate

2015 Railway Block Shiraz

2015 Railway Block Shiraz
New Vintage Release

“The most concentrated of the single block Shiraz pillars, this leaves the lifted, floral aromatics behind in a journey to shiraz’s world of spice: clove, anise, turmeric and black pepper. There are generous fruit flavours from the blue to black spectrum, yet the overall experience is one of energy, herb and power.” 94/100 James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2018

Tasting Notes
Huon Hooke's Review "Deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is fragrantly spicy and ripe, rich and plummy, with some undergrowth accents. The wine is medium to full-bodied and soft, fleshy and savoury, the palate finishing with some peppery graphite notes and a trace of pleasant bitterness. It's really nicely balanced and approachable now." 91/100 Drink 2018 to 2030

Vineyard Notes
The Railway Block was planted to shiraz in 1999 and over the subsequent years has earned a reputation for producing a delicate style of shiraz with a pronounced spicy character. The temperate conditions during the 2015 growing season resulted in concentrated and balanced berries that were hand harvested in several passes through the vineyard.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was destemmed and partially crushed before being pumped to open vats for fermentation. Hand plunging and minimal pump overs provided gentle extraction from the skins over 21 days. Once fermented to dryness the wine was pumped into a combination of French oak barriques and puncheons (25% new) for 10 months. The wine was bottled unfined and with minimal sulphur additions, before spending two years in the bottle prior to release.
Food Pairing Notes
