Nietschke 2018 Shiraz is deep red in colour with purple hues. It is very uplifting with inviting aromas of chocolate cake, plum jam, cinnamon spice, roses and a hint of toasty mocha oak. The palate is full-bodied with rich dark fruits. It is generous, mouth-filling and beautifully balanced. Along with red and black fruits are subtle oak barrel notes giving complexity and dimension. Tannins are mild and well-integrated adding structure without obtrusion. A lengthy finish completes this wine. Nietschke is a fine Barossa Shiraz that will cellar gracefully in the medium term
The 2018 vintage was superb. Winter was slightly wetter than average getting the vines off to a brilliant start leading them into Spring which was warmer and drier than average. Rain in early December refreshed the vines and ensured they remained strong and healthy for the overall dry and hot Summer. Autumn also remained dry with perfect Autumnal temperatures leading into harvest. The 2018 yields are good and the quality is excellent, a classic Barossa vintage.
