The 2011 Grand Barossa Shiraz has just a touch of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Deep garnet-purple colored, it presents lovely and intense ripe black fruit and blueberry preserve notes on the nose with hints of violets, chocolate, pepper and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and generously fruited in the mouth, it has a good backbone of medium level rounded tannins and lively acidity, finishing long. Drink it now to 2016+.
