Campbells, The Brothers Shiraz

THE BROTHERS SHIRAZ – 2013
Great wine does take time and this is certainly true of The Brothers Shiraz. Tended by hand from vine to bottle, this is
the pinnacle of our endeavours and is the ultimate expression of Rutherglen Shiraz.
– Colin Campbell
COLOUR
Dark crimson with purple highlights.
BOUQUET
A deep and aromatic nose of plum and blackberry fruit,
with oak derived vanillin and spice.
PALATE
Full bodied with complex layers of ripe plum and dark cherry
fruits. Carefully selected oak adds a touch of earth and spice
with finely grained tannins providing texture and length.
A stylish wine with the natural building blocks to age and
develop in bottle.
CELLARING AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Our 2013 The Brothers Shiraz has undergone extended
maturation in both barrel and bottle for three years prior to
release. This time has allowed the fruit, oak and tannins to fully
integrate and deliver a truly memorable Rutherglen Shiraz.
Whilst approachable now, this complex and structured wine will
reward those with the patience to cellar to 2020 and beyond. Try
alongside a tender rib eye steak with green peppercorn sauce.
DATE TASTED
August 2018
THE GRAPES
Shiraz from our Rutherglen vineyard.
WINEMAKING
After fermentation for five days using closed fermenters, the
wine was aged in new American and French oak puncheons for a
period of 2 years.
