With over 150 years of heritage and tradition in the Barossa, the 1859 series celebrates Saltram's wines establishment in the region by founder William Salter. The 1859 Shiraz is made in a contemporary vibrant and textural style, displaying notes of dark berry fruits and plums. The palate is typically rich with an excellent balance of fruit flavours, subtle tannins and a soft, velvety finish. A terrific example of a vibrant and textural Barossan Shiraz.
"Fresh, exuberant style of Barossa shiraz. Low in oak. Jubey blackberry and plum with an edge of asphalt and sweet dry grass. Fills the mouth with sweet berried flavour. Best consumed young but shouldn't fall over in a hurry. High appeal."
