2022 Tallawanta Vineyard Shiraz

2022 Tallawanta Vineyard Shiraz

Hunter Valley, NSW

Beautiful mid-density colour with bright purple hues. Lifted berry fruits with some char from the French oak build on the palate. At 13% alcohol, the wine has medium-bodied weight, ripe berry fruit and fine, long tannins that carry through to the finish. A classic medium-weight Hunter Valley red wine that is a lovely drink as a young wine and, like all our Hunter Valley Shiraz, will age beautifully.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Comments
The Tallawanta Vineyard was planted in 1920, on an East-facing slope on Thompsons Rd. It is one of the most celebrated single vineyard Shiraz Vineyards in the Hunter Valley and has been under Brokenwood’s careful management since 2014. A season with many similarities to 2021 but overall of higher quality. La Nina once again made for a cool, wet season, albeit tempered by consistent breeze, which kept the canopy dry and disease at bay. Pokolbin had reached its annual rainfall by the end of November, with it being the wettest November on record. We ended up receiving 956mm for 2021. it was one of the latest harvests in the Hunter in many years. Thankfully, the sun came out, and the last of the Tallawanta Vineyard was picked on the 23rd of February, resulting in a fine, fragrant Shiraz. Handpicking this fruit has resulted in a shiraz full of finesse.
Food Pairing
Enjoy with pork, or lamb and rosemary sausages.
Processing started with 3-4 day cold soaking and then 4-5 day ferment at 23-26C. The vineyard is on heavy clay similar to the Graveyard Vineyard with more stone on the top of the ridge, giving way to darker loam soil at the bottom of the hill. The oak regime for this wine is 100% French oak, with no new oak.
Drinking well now but will age gracefully.
