Hayes Family Wines Marananga Shiraz 2021


I have no doubt that some more fancied Barossa wineries would price this at $200+. A superb Shiraz, when you consider the age of the vines, the quality of oak and astute winemaking, this single vineyard Hayes Family Wines Marananga is an excellent expression of the variety.

Sourced from a low-cropping site in Marananga, the vines are over 100 years old. Over a few days of tasting, this built some fabulous momentum. Decant to enjoy now, but be patient and hold and the glory of exceptional Barossa Shiraz awaits in the years to come.

It opens with scents of clove, cedar and cardamom with mulberries and blueberry paste. The more I inspect this the more the words depth and detail echo. Those aromas flow through to the mouth and dense plums flood every crevice with a touch of coconut rough sliding in. Long and moreish, fine woodsy and baking spices curl around the mouth ever so effortlessly. And that length! Magnificent and seemingly unstoppable. It's curious yet precise all at the same time. Just brilliant. Stand and applaud.

Drink to ten years+
