Seven Sleepers Shiraz


SKU: N/A Category:


Seven Sleepers, or Siebenschlaffer, is named after an old Barossa German farmers’ lore, being that the weather that occurs on 27 June is likely to be prevalent for the next 7 weeks.

Vineyards: Fruit for Seven Sleepers Shiraz 2021 was grown on the Kurtz Family vineyard at Light Pass in the Barossa Valley. The vines receive minimal irrigation and are pruned for vine balance, resulting in maximum fruit quality and varietal expression.

Growing Season:Good rainfall in Winter and Spring of 2021 saw excellent soil moisture levels, and ensured a good growing season leading into Vintage 2022. Some inclement weather conditions during the flowering period resulted in a variable fruit set so cropping levels were naturally reduced. Good rainfall in February resulted in an even ripening period, relatively stress free ripening and overall a good growing season.

Colour: Bright purple-red with crimson hues.

Nose: A bright, lively, fruit-driven wine with dominant aromas of plum, cherry and mint chocolate, with hints of violet and toasted almonds.

Palate: Juicy dark fruits fill the palate, with a touch of oak that supports but doesn’t dominate, allowing the dark fruit to show its full potential. Fine, ripe tannins give length, with a finish that’s silky, yet gently structured, with delicious, lingering flavour.

Peak Drinking: The rich combination of sweet, mouthfilling flavours is ideally suited to current consumption, however the wine will also reward careful short-term cellaring.

Food Match: Seven Sleepers Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried, barbecued or roasted meats, pasta, pizza and other full-flavoured dishes.
