2019 Texture Single Vineyard Lyndoch 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.

Lyndoch Shiraz

Finishing at Lyndoch in the Southern end of the Barossa at the lowest altitude of 230m, vine age of 90+ years, this vineyard has deep red clay over limestone. The vineyard experiences fresh gully breezes in summer. The colour is deep purple, red with aromas of rich blackberries, chocolate oak and a hint of gunflint. The palate is unashamedly full bodied with super rich dense fruit of blackberries, raspberries and sweet Indian spices of cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. There is an earthy note and well integrated chocolate nutty oak. The textured mouthfeel is luscious and round with the juicy fruit balanced by velvety tannins. The immense flavour continues through the palate and finishes long. 

Recommended drinking from 2025 - 2040.
