Atze’s Corner 2017 The Bachelor Shiraz – Barossa Valley

Atze's Corner 2017 The Bachelor Shiraz - Barossa Valley

Named after Bert Kleining, a bachelor who worked the land which the fruit is now sourced from”

I was recently sent samples from Atze’s Corner new Barossa Legends Red Collection to taste and it’s safe to say this Bachelor 2017 Shiraz didn’t last long unopened. Actually a fun fact for you, on the wine app – Vivino, this is my 100th Australian Shiraz tasting note 🙂

The other 2 wines in this new release trio of ‘Barossa Legends’ from Northern Barossa Valley vineyards are a 2017 ‘THE MOB’ Montepulciano and a 2017 ‘THE GIANT’ Durif. Stay tuned for my tasting notes to come on these two.

Here’s some quick info about The Bachelor:

  • Winemaker: Andrew Kalleske (6th generation vigneron)
  • Food match: Wagyu steak or slow roasted lamb (for more Shiraz food matches, click here)
  • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Subregions: Koonunga & Ebenezer
  • Cellaring: Up to 2030
  • Price: $35

I decided to let Mr Spittoon take down the notes for this one and I think he sums it up pretty well:

  • Eye: opaque blackberry
  • Nose: vanilla oak, perfume of blueberries & blackcurrant
  • Mouth: smooth subtle tannins, farmy and acidic freshness

This wine was sent to me direct from the Wine Marketing Hub as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
