Thomson Estate Double Pass Shiraz 2021 (12 x 750mL) South Australia

Description:

1838 was the year Walter Thomson, with wife Jane, arrived in Australia and established a winemaking tradition. Faithful to his approach, our estate grown parcels are carefully tended by our vignerons to create wines of great intensity.

Double Pass™ is the process of creating more flavour, richness, and complexity from the fruit we grow. The First Pass is harvested from estate grown fruit at optimum ripeness that creates a lifted and fragrant Shiraz with red fruits and spice. The Second Pass is harvested from Vine Dried Shiraz which has been left on the vines to develop dark fruit and rich flavours. We combine the wines from the First and Second Pass to create the Double Pass™ which is a stunningly rich and balanced wine with fresh red and black fruits combined with spice and fruitcake aromas.

WINEMAKING

The 2021 vintage saw cooler than average temperatures with no heat waves. Fruit ripening was gradual and even producing beautifully balanced fruit bursting with flavour. At each picking time the grapes are destemmed and transferred to temperature controlled fermenters where daily pump overs assist in extracting the intense colour and flavours from skins. Once fermentation is complete the wine is pressed off skins and transferred to a tank for maturation. The blending of the first pass wine with the second pass is undertaken to create the Double Pass, perfectly balanced wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

COLOUR

Deep purple body with red hue.

AROMA

Mulberty, strawberry and black cherry fill the nose. Additional spicey oak adds complexity to the aroma.

PALATE

This full-bodied red wine has strawberry and black cherry fruit flavours. The ample fruit combines with subtle cinnamon bark and coffee expressed from the oak on the mid palate, which all combine with the soft tannins and medium acid to balance the finish. Perfect to pair with Moroccan meatball and chickpea bake, or lamb cutlets grilled on the barbeque. Vegan friendly.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Byrne Vineyards produce many wines for domestic and global markets, this wine is one of the family.

The Byrne wine ranges express our family's dedication to the land and the highest quality estate grown wines with vineyards located in wine growing regions of Clare Valley and Riverland, South Australia. Rob Byrne, together with daughter Petria, are the family drivers behind the business started by Rob’s parents. 

In 1960 Romla & Eric Byrne first purchased the property Devlin's Pound near Waikerie, in the Riverland, South Australia. Here began the passion for the Byrne Family with the first vines planted on this site in 1965. Although originally working as a Chartered Engineer, it was the wine industry that has become the passion for Director Rob Byrne. The philosophy is to grow quality fruit, whilst conserving our precious natural resources.

With a family history of three generations in the South Australian wine and horticultural industry, Byrne Vineyards is committed to maintaining environmental sustainability. Scotts Creek vineyard is located just outside the historical township of Morgan in the Riverland, South Australia. Established in 1974, under the direction of Australian Wine Industry pioneer Max Schubert, the site was selected for its stony soils over a limestone base, producing wines with immense character and complexity. The historic vineyard overlooks the Scotts Creek Wetlands.

Byrne is a recognised leader inenvironmental sustainability with its preservation efforts of the Scotts Creek Wetlands located on our property, adoption of Freshcare Code of Practice Environmental Viticulture, being the first in South Australia to have an accredited wetland management plan and permanent wetland water licence, adopting state of the art water technology that has allowed 240 million litres to be returned to the Murray Darling for increased environmental flows. The Scotts Creek Wetlands one of South Australia's largest natural wetland environments and home to many rare and endangered native flora and fauna.
