The Bobbie Burns Shiraz is a Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years o Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality.
The wins is a rich deep red colour and expresses a deep, fruit filled aroma. One that is full to the brim of dark, black berries and plum fruit. The wines time in barrel is apparent by its subtle oaky notes with a slight hit of char oak in the background. On the palate this wine does not disappoint – This wine is full bodied with powerful characters of dark berries and ripe plum fruit, beautifully balanced with layers of fine, dry tannin and complementary notes of liquorice, ironstone and spice. A wonderful vintage that is drinking well in its youth but destined to reward careful cellaring.
Produced by Campbell’s in Rutherglen since 1870 and still run by the family (with Colin Campbell and daughter Julie at the helm) the Bobbie Burns Shiraz provides a nod to their Scottish heritage and is the signature bottle of the winery – the best they can produce and a nod to the Rutherglen vines, agriculture and ecosystem.
