David Franz – 2016 ‘HP’ Hydraulic Press Shiraz

$25.00 inc. GST

My tribute to the Old Man is to resurrect the ‘Hydraulic Press Shiraz’ and hopefully reinforce this link with my past while bringing beautiful rich soft Barossa Shiraz to a new generation of drinkers. The Barossa produces some of the greatest examples of Shiraz (not at all biased) in the world. The 2016 H.P. Hydraulic Press Shiraz is a fantastic reflection of the traditional ‘Barossa Style’.

Description

Production:

Sourced from our Stelzer Road Vineyard, Bultawilta Block and our Stonewell Hill Vineyard

Colour:

Vibrant deep red with a rich dark core

Nose:

Upfront fresh Satsuma plum in a spicebox complexity. Earthy mushroom notes with deep tarry hints round out a pretty complex nose

Palate:

Innitial upfront plum and dark chocolate linger through to a spicy finegrained finish. The tripartate balance of tannin bright acid and fresh red black fruit is both generous and restrained. Terrific cellaring potential, but great to drink now.

Philosophy:

Growing up in the Lehmann household had many advantages for the cheeky young fellas my Brother Phil and I once were. Undoubtedly, one of the best things was having clandestine access to ‘PL’ and Marg‘s Cellar and drinking (on the sly) the wines Dad made at Saltrams in the 60’s and 70’s. Not only was it bloody cheap (the Old Five Finger Discount) it also forged our palates and (for me at least) built the unconscious ‘markers’ that have defined the way my wine making style evolved. A perennial favorite for Phil and me was the ‘HP’ Shiraz blends from the first half of the 70‘s. These warm plush rich reds still echo in my mind’s palate and drinking them today never fails to remind just how great Barossa Shiraz really is. My tribute to the Old Man is to resurrect the ‘Hydraulic Press Shiraz’ and hopefully reinforce this link with my past while bringing beautiful rich soft Barossa Shiraz to a new generation of drinkers. The Barossa produces some of the greatest examples of Shiraz (not at all biased) in the world. The 2016 H.P. Hydraulic Press Shiraz is a fantastic reflection of the traditional ‘Barossa Style’.

The liquid offerings of Barossa gold. Unique small batch parcels of Barossa wine; hand wrought with passion to your glass from our vines…As you may have gathered, I am very passionate about the fruit I produce and wines I make. You can savour my wines in the knowledge that they have been nurtured first for a year on the vines then crafted for a few months in the winery before 4 years maturation in wood and the bottle. Each bottle of wine is carefully hand printed and wrapped before being placed in a hand printed carton then sent out into the wide world to find their way to you.
