2019 Lost Penny
Almond Row
Shiraz

$30.00

Almond Row was named after one little row of almond trees that once grew beside these Shiraz vines. When Nick was a child, he would pick the almonds and crack open the shells so he could sell the kernels for his pocket money. But as time went on, the trees were no longer required. Today you can still see the odd almond shells next to this block of Shiraz.

Reviews

Impenetrable core into a deeply purple-tinged rim. Blackberry, spearmint and dark chocolate aromatics. A big, rich red loaded with ripe blue and black fruits, a layer of dark chocolate and cinnamon provides interest along the line. Velvety tannins caress the edges and drive length but lack power to focus the finish to full dryness. Offers a lot of wine at the price.

2019 Vintage Reviews

Medium, intense ruby colour with a fading into the rim. Blueberry compote, mint leaf and mocha aromas. Big and rich on the palate, lashings of vanilla and chocolate over plush and ripe blue fruits. Velvet tannins add further to the sense of weight. Has reasonable length and the framework carries to the finish. Whilst the alcohol is high it works in this context.

Stuart Knock – The Real Review

Estate-grown Ebenezer shiraz from 5th-generation Barossa grape growers Carol and Nick Riebke. Deep red-purple hue, with aromas of dark plum and blackberry fruit, undercut with moody spice notes, dark chocolate, licorice and light, cedary oak. Weighty with intense, ripe and spicy black fruits and and an underlying sense of latent horsepower. A classic northern Barossa style.

Vintage Notes

The 2019 vintage started with a dry growing season and continued with below-average rainfall. Budburst and early vine growth were delayed in September with below average minimum temperatures but then caught up during October and November with warmer than average days. January and December resulted in above average maximum temperatures. As February was closer to average maximums and below average minimums, it resulted in the perfect conditions for the ripening of smaller crops. By the end of the second week in April, we had finished harvest – one of the earliest on record.

Winemaker Notes

Colour: Dark deep red with a garnet core.
Nose: Rich dark red fruits with intense sweet oak.
Palate: A full and complex structure with mouth-filling intense black fruits. Rich sweet oak spice giving a round, full and complex structure.

Overall this wine is still very young holding fresh acidity and with careful cellaring will assist the wine to develop and further evolve. The 2019 Lost Penny Almond Row Shiraz has an overall sweet spiced nose and palate with an elegant structure built around mouth filling rich berry characters.
