In any vintage we now handle many small parcels of Barossa Valley wine. These parcels reflect how the grapes blossomed during that vintage in that vineyard.
Similar but different is the best way to describe the tastes of a row of Barossa Shiraz from the same vintage with vineyards many kilometres apart. Additional factors are the picking time and the approach used by each winemaker with the winery equipment available.
However, all these variables are overridden by the vintage conditions which impart a similarity to all. Vintage 2020 was small and difficult and 2021 came with great relief being a return to a classical Barossa vintage, that being one with steady, even ripening without stress on the vines.
We enjoy wines like this Crayford when younger though the wine will hold up well for many years.
