The fruit in The Dirtman Shiraz is sourced from vineyards in both the Eden Valley and the Barossa Valley. The two regions are distinctly different in terms of climate and dirt. Bringing them together allows Gibson Wines to craft a wine that celebrates classic Barossa Shiraz generosity and plushness, with a backbone of finesse that is ideal for aging.
The Dirtman 2021 vintage has been matured in new and seasoned American oak and features intense aromas of ripe stone fruit and spice, overlaid with nuances of smoky oak and blackcurrant. This full-bodied red wine has plenty of structure and depth, making it the perfect companion for rich and hearty dishes.
A blend of shiraz from the Barossa and Eden valleys aged in new and seasoned French and American oak for 18 months. Bright ripe plum fruits with underlying hints of baking spices, Cherry Ripe, purple flowers, earth, smoked meats, cedar and dark chocolate. There is some nice mineral crunch to the plum and berry fruits on the palate, a woosh of oak spice and pressed flowers, light sandy tannin and a bright, medium-length finish.
