KellerMeister Ralph's Ensemble Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Barossa Valley, Australia
KellerMeister is owned and operated by the Pearce family. While continuing to do small things well and have fun along the way, winemaker (and owner), Mr. Mark Pearce has firmly established considerable pedigree, particularly around the winery's Shiraz and Grenache based wines in recent years.
Under Mark's leadership, the winery achieved significant success on the world's biggest stage, the International Wine Challenge, in London in 2012 being awarded the World's Best Shiraz, Australia's Best Shiraz and the Barossa's Best Shiraz and then followed up in 2013 being awarded the Barossa's Best Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro.
Today the winery is rated in the top 7% of Australian producers by Australia’s most authoritative and acclaimed wine critic, Mr. James Halliday.
Bright garnet hue. Vibrant aromatics of dark plum, cassis, dark cherry and mulberry with lifted vinous minty notes, milk chocolate, coffee and spices of whole black pepper and aniseed. The palate is fresh and lively, ripe dark berried fruits cascade across the length of the palate finishing rich and full with textured fine chewy tannins.
