Gibson 'The Dirtman" Shiraz
Clousure: Screw Cap
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
From the Winery:
A nickname that has stuck since his early days at Australia’s original wine finishing school, Roseworthy College, ‘The Dirtman’ is indeed, Rob Gibson. The connection to dirt runs deep with Rob, who along with formalised training in both viticulture and winemaking, also is a geologist.
Our Dirtman Shiraz is a blend of both Eden Valley and Barossa floor fruit. The two regions are distinctly different in climate and dirt. Bringing them together allows us to craft a wine that celebrates classic Barossa Shiraz generosity and plushness, with a backbone of finesse for aging.
Matured in new and matured American and French oak, lifted aromas of stone fruit and blackcurrant prevail, overlaid with nuances of smoky oak and sweet spices.
