The Bethany First Village Shiraz 2021 vintage is a dark black/purple with purple highlights. Srong aromas of dense dark berry fruits, cherries and blackberries. Intertwined with sandy earth, subtle cayenne spice and dark chocolate notes. A voluptuous and balanced palate with drive and structure. The dark cherry and berry fruits fill the attack and fan out over the full length of the palate leaving a coating of dark cacao chocolate fruit and texture. Fine grained silky tannins gives shape, length and structure to the palate. An elegant wine with great power and length. Subtle cinnamon and oak combine to provide a lingering finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

The village of Bethany was the first settlement in the Barossa Valley in 1842. Predominately European immigrants arrived and began to build houses and till the soil. It was in 1852 that the first vines were planted on the Schrapel Family Vineyards in Bethany igniting a passion and tradition that continues on today, six generations later.

2021 provided Bethany with exceptional conditions for growing high quality grapes. It was one of those years that had a little bit of everything but not too much of anything. Bethany had good winter and spring rains with total rainfall for 2020 being right on the money for a normal average Barossa year (around 450-500mm). This lead to good fruiting conditions and a much more balanced yield than previous, drier years. The growing season then proceeded to give some nice warm conditions but never any of those potentially worrying heat events. Critically, the evening and night temperatures were always on the cooler side.

Parcels of fruit were harvested and fermented separately prior to being put to oak hogsheads for 12-18 months maturation with the balance of time in stainless steel to retain freshness. The final blend was composed prior to bottling to give all the composite parts time to come together.
