Chris Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz 2009 750ml - Gift Box 

Barossa Valley, Australia

The Hoffmann Vineyard is the result of close collaboration between Chris Ringland (as winemaker) and his friend, grape-grower Adrian Hoffmann. The vineyard occupies key sites in the Ebenezer sub-region of the northern Barossa. This wine is produced from selections of vines between 60 and 100+ years old. These are picked at different stages of ripeness, resulting in five separate two-tonne grape parcels ultimately filling 20 barrels. The final wine is a selection of the best 4 barrels. 

*Production never exceeds 200 cases!*

Each bottle has a unique number printed.

Yet to be released (it was preceded by the 2010). Low yields and favourable February and March weather produced an exceptionally concentrated wine, which spent an unprecedented 63 months in 100% new French oak. It's crammed with vertical strata of telescopic fruit edged with dried herbs and has tremendous palate presence and length. A deep seam of blackcurrant, cassis, red cherry and sloes flexes beneath the surface, while mouthcoating, textured, mineral tannins buttress the finish. A monumental wine.
