Callum Powell knows a thing or two about shiraz and the Barossa. Steping away from Powell & Son a few years ago has allowed him to to really drill down and focus on his Agricola label. Sourcing fruit from a number of sites and bottling them as individual expressions is the name of the game here.
This Flaxman Valley cuvee comes from two sites in the high Eden. Incredibly balanced and highly detailed, violets, meat, black olive, many types of pepper and a salty mineral aspect all on a sleek frame with plenty of finesse. Unlike the wines of his father which are intense, brooding and of an epic scale, Callum has crafted a set of wines that take all the knowledge, skill and fastidiousness that he has learnt from him and interpreted them in such a way that this excellent wine will make shiraz fans both old and new salivate.
