The Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz is a tête de cuvée (literally ‘head of the blend’) style.Key parts of the vineyard, with vines between 60 and 100+ years old, are picked at different stages of ripeness, resulting in five separate two-tonne grape parcels ultimately filling 20 barrels. The final wine is a selection of the best four barrels. The annual make will never exceed 200 dozen.
It’s an ‘essence-of-Shiraz’ style – uncompromisingly rich and concentrated. The first vintage was 2006 and the wine has begun building a track record that will inevitably match that of the Barossa Ranges wine.
Right now, you need to decant it 12 hours (or more) before serving to allow the fruit to come to the fore.
Langton's Australia
  

"Inky garnet colour with a complex bouquet of luscious dark forest berries, cedar and licorice. Powerful and opulent with great concentration and volume in the mouth, it unfolds in the glass to reveal a panoply of forest fruits, along with a dusting of sweet brown spices, charcuterie, dried herbs and cedar. The ultimate hallmark of this multi-faceted wine, though, is its tannin finesse and long, palate-staining finish. Do give it a good decant several hours before serving, to allow the wine to reveal its inner secrets. Or cellar for 10-15 years."
Gavin Lennard, Langton's.
