Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is a sub-regional expression that is unmistakably in character. Conceived from the ancient soils of Marananga, which lie very close to the centre of the Barossa Valley floor – slightly to the North West, where warm dry conditions and rich red soils provide the backbone to some of the region’s best known wines.
Each release delivers a contemporary shiraz alternative, framed by a mix of oaks; French and American, old and new – crafted in accordance with the traditional method.
COLOUR: Very deep dark red.
NOSE: Sub-region instantly ID’d - voluminous blue fruits and giveaway juniper. More than just ‘earthy’ – freshly tilled earth, coal/tar dust, gritty. Elemental. Tasting at this stage of bottle maturation – an ever so subtle hint of pâté topped with fortified gelatine. Well, maybe not so subtle! Oak? Pleasing not to have to blind pick its age or derivation!
PALATE: Crunchy riberry, deemed a native superfood and often eaten raw – reportedly possessing ‘a refreshing, spicy flavour, with a hint of clove and cinnamon’. More familial, more primary – blueberry, glazed black plum and fig. Pronounced and omnipresent oak – still sensitively evoking a (teacake sponge) sweetness. A crisp and clean finish ensues, with a yoghurt “bite” (acidity) completing the package… oh, and were satin tannins mentioned?
