Chaffey Brothers Synonymous Shiraz 2017 - Wine

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson/purple in colour with a nose of cedar, spice
and plum hinting at the mix of dark fruits and chocolate lurking on the rich structured palate. The wine shows powerful depth of flavour with plush lingering mouthfeel.

Production Notes

Synonymous because the Barossa really is still identified with Shiraz. Eight different vineyards are represented here as a cross-section of Barossa sub regions and geologies with Stockwell, Ebenezer, Moppa (all northern Barossa), Tanunda and Springton (Eden Valley) being the major components. Fermentation takes place in a mix of open and static fermenters with 6-7 days of maceration before pressing into French and American hogsheads barrels (300L) where they mature separately for about 12 months before bottling unfined and with the minimum SO2 added.

Producer Profile

This is the exciting new face of winemaking in Australia. Established in 2008 by brothers-in-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela, Chaffey Bros champion Riesling, Shiraz and Grenache from Eden and Barossa Valleys. Working in the realm of minimal intervention, artisan, small-batch wines, the pair prioritise experimentation and quality. Dan and Theo share a love for the sometimes brutal, remote landscapes of Barossa and Eden Valleys, which also boast a rich tapestry of passionate communities. We have long admired the Chaffey Bros wines - the whites all have this beautiful floral note about them, making them equally elegant and quaffable, while the reds are punchy, balancing razor-like acidity with purity of fruit to produce a signature, easy-drinking style...so far removed from the classic bruiser Barossa Shiraz wines of the past. The Chaffey Bros also are not afraid to try something new, and for me, this is what new wave Australian wine is all about! Great wines that challenge your thinking at an affordable price. Watch out for the Pax Aeterna - a 100% Grenache, whole cluster pressed, minimal SO2, super crunchy, ripe, red fruit, a real corker of a wine and looks banging too!
