2022 Spice Trader Shiraz – absolute value shiraz by Ben Glaetzer



Tasting Notes

The 2022 Spice Trader Shiraz wears a purple coat with a fine maroon trim. The aromas are of plump Ribena inspired blackcurrant with hints of smoked almonds and quince. Lush black fruits spiral around the palate leaving echoes of cinnamon and cherry syrup. The long soft finish cools the throat and teases with more flavour and entices you on to another sip.


Our Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for nine days. The wine matured for 12 months exclusively in second and third use French and American oak to retain aromas and freshness in the wine.


2022 has been one of the best vintages experienced in Langhorne Creek. Mid-winter rainfall was above-average and a few riverside vineyards also received a small flood giving the soil a good soak. The rainfall ceased quickly in September As usual, cooling breezes across Lake Alexandrina helped to maintain excellent natural acidity. Extended periods of southerly air streams kept conditions cool with excellent flavour and acidity.
