Vintage 2016
Wine Type Red
Varietal Red Blend
Region Australia

The Uprising, a new wine aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels, pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government's hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers banded together to overthrow them. We aged a portion of this wine in Rum barrels lending a warm brown sugar finish to this dark jammy wine.

Tasting Notes

The vintage 2016 is Shiraz dominant lending bright raspberry fruit and plush tannin structure with Cabernet Sauvignon to provide blackberry fruits , palate weight and structure and then Grenache to provide spice and fruit sweetness on the palate. The nose has intense lifted mocha, caramel and baking spice notes . On the palate the wine is full and mouth coating with brown sugar, jammy blackberry and chocolate notes.

Vintage Conditions

A warm, dry spring resulted in slightly reduced yields, however the vines adapted well. Rains in January caused little damage and provided much-need-ed water following a dry start to the season. The following cool, dry February weather, and warm conditions in early March, created ideal conditions for steady, even ripening. Overall, 2016 was considered an exceptional vintage producing wines full of flavor, balanced with natural acidity and ripe tannins.
