The fruit for the 2021 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz is from Marananga in the Barossa Valley (east of Seppeltsfield, south of Greenock). Currently, the oak a combination of French and American (each component featuring 29% new) is sitting atop the fruit here. The essence of Marananga is disguised by this element aromatically. In the mouth, the fruit starts to show: mulberry, raspberry, ferrous, iodine, roast meat, beetroot, peppercorns and licorice. I would suggest that this wine needs time in the cellar; the oak is effusive here. The fruit is better. Have patience. 14.5% alcohol, sealed under natural cork.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2051
