2019 Trove Estate The Laurels Shiraz

The ‘Laurels’ range from Trove Estate in the Margaret River, part of the Byron & Harold empire, is designed to represent wines worthy of receiving laurels, not resting on them. These form the pinnacle of the portfolio and offer full flavours and longevity. This Shiraz certainly fits the brief. Delicious stuff, inky maroon in colour with a nose of plums, chocolate, dry herbs, spices, warm earth and cloves. Rich and layered, there are soft tannins but plenty of them and good carry here. This is a wine which maintains its intensity right through to the finish. Lots to like here. Read more

Tasting Notes

A deep, full-bodied red from Western Australia's Margaret River region. The nose is extremely aromatic, with intense notes of dark cherries, blackberries, and plums, backed by subtle nuances of floral and spice. On the palate, juicy black fruit flavours are married with a spicy, rich, velvety tannin structure, and a complex finish of dark chocolate, mocha and dried herbs. The colour is a deep, dark ruby-purple and the wine has a lovely texture, with good acidity and a long, lingering finish. An excellent approachable Shiraz with plenty of flavour and character.

Winemakers Note

Laurels are originally the evergreen wreaths given to winners in all walks of life. They are bestowed on those who have excelled in their field of endeavor and have been a mark of honour and achievement for thousands of years. To have received laurels, it is understood you have reached the very peak of success. And so it is with ‘The Laurels’.

These are wines of distinction and gravitas – they are full flavoured wines with tremendous longevity. However, this range of wines also demonstratep that we never rest on our laurels – that every vintage our viticulturists and winemakers strive to surpass the wines of previous vintages. They learn every year and strive to deliver back to us wines of distinction and elegance that exceed the quality of previous triumphs.
