Adamo Barossa Valley Shiraz 2020

Adamo Barossa Valley Shiraz 2020

‘Sourced mainly from two blocks in the Barossa Valley, predominantly in Greenock on the western range and Penrice on the eastern range. Both subregions have soil profiles of moderately deep red/brown clay loam with small fragments of ironstone and quartz.  Matured in 100% French oak, predominantly 300L hogsheads for 24 months. All parcels were kept separate until final blending resulting in a wine full of red fruits, spice, fine tannins and focus.‘

Matt Wenk, Winemaker & Founder

“Adamo” comes from the Latin verb “adamare”, meaning “I love greatly”. It’s a fitting name for a wine which no doubt has many admirers, and I’m certainly one of them. It’s quite a chameleon in the glass, initially coming across as dark and brooding, but before too long, it turns very bright and lively after some air. There’s an enticing mix of red and black fruits, both fresh and dried (blackcurrant, raspberry, mulberry), a spicy edge from nutmeg and liquorice, and a slight touch of tertiary characters coming through in the form of leather. It has a chalky, drying finish in the mouth with dusty tannins, and it still has some very good years ahead of it.  94 Points Brendan Black Wine Pilot
