2019 Texture Single Vineyard Angaston Shiraz

Texture Series


Texture (noun); the feel, appearance, or consistency of a surface or substance

It doesn't just come from the soils Derek treads as he checks the vines throughout the season. It's not just in the skins and flesh of the dark red grapes Kirsten peels open to show customers as they tour the family estate. It doesn't just come from the smooth, tight grains of French oak Derek carefully selects to rest the wine in for two years. Nor is it just the mouthfeel of each distinctly different wine. It is all these things combined, that provided the inspiration to create the Paisley Texture Single Vineyard Shiraz series.

The Texture series features three distinct Shiraz built on generous fruit, hands on winemaking, expressive soils and quality oak. Amazing fruit from 90-year-old to 22-year-old vines, planted in three of the Barossa's unique Grounds Zones, offered Derek the perfect foundation for the Texture series.

The creation of this series. for Paisley owners Derek and Kirsten, was about pulling together all the elements that go into a great wine, starting at the very beginning of the journey with quality grapes. The elevation and aspect of the vineyard, vine age and soils were important and so was the fruit weight and choosing the perfect French oak barrels.

In 2019 Derek picked three parcels of fruit to create the perfect Shiraz for every palate.
Together these three wines offer a luxurious tour of the sub-regions of the Barossa, while paying homage to the style and texture to Shiraz.

The Angaston Shiraz 

Travel uphill to the Paisley Estate vineyard in Angaston in Eden Valley. At a higher altitude of 440m, vine age of 22 years, this amphitheatre style vineyard experiences cooler conditions than the Barossa floor and has fertile, black stony soils, dotted with Angaston Marble, ironstone and quartz. The colour is deep red, purple with aromas of lifted bright cherries, blackberries and raspberry with a slight thyme note. The medium to full bodied palate has lovely juby fruit, raspberry and blackberry with sweet cinnamon and clove spice. Minerality then appears and combines with the fine grained tannins to provide a chalky textural element to balance the luscious fruit.

It finishes with great length of fruit, spice and nutty oak notes. Recommended drinking from 2025 - 2035.
