Shut The Gate 'For Freedom' Single Site Barbera 2016, South Australia
The fruit for this Barbera was sourced from the Bird family Vineyard in the Wrattonbully region, South Eastern South Australia, and transported to Clare for processing.
This wine offers up very intense aromas of fresh red and black berries with a distinctive dried herb scent. Rosemary and thyme continues the theme on the palate with black cherries, blueberry and hints vanilla oak notes.
This Barbera is best enjoyed young and fresh for most but will develop interesting complex flavour over the next 3 – 4 years.
