Wine of the month: 2016 Klauber Block Shiraz

Wine of the month: 2016 Klauber Block Shiraz

One of our fan favourites at Kies Wines is the Klauber Block Shiraz; loved by staff members, wine reviewers and rock stars alike this wine carries quite the reputation.

THE VINES:

The Klauber Block comes from the older, more mature vines of the Lyndoch estate, and are nestled close to the 1880 ironstone cottage; the Kies Family Wines cellar door.

The fruit has been specifically selected to provide the complexity and excellence required to maintain it’s incomparable reputation.

THE WINE:

The rare combination of old vines, beautiful rich soil and stunning vintage conditions produce good rich Barossa lift, with an abundance of fruit mid-palate, and quite a dry finish.

The nose presents plum, dark chocolate and smoke; the pallet has sour cherry flavours coming from the gutsy acidity. The finish is long with a grippy tannin profile.

Drinking well now but good things come to those who wait!

AWARDS:

GOLD: China Wine & Spirits Awards
Watch this space as the 2016 is a new release and we are expecting great things.

The 2002 vintage was awarded 5th best wine by Oz Clarke in the UK.

FUN FACT:

Eddie Veddar, the lead singer of Pearl Jam, once drank the Klauber Block Shiraz while on stage during a concert in Adelaide.

We agree that this wine is suitable for a rock star.

FOOD:

Pair with char grilled steak and roast potatoes, with rosemary gravy.

The Klauber Block Shiraz is on tasting at our cellar door, 7 days per week (9am – 4pm), and available to purchase through our website here – we have a six pack special running until the end of February. Order yours now…
