Small Gully
'The Formula Robert's Shiraz'
Shiraz
Adelaide Plains

The Formula is the entry into Small Gully’s world. This wine is sourced primarily from a vineyard that Robert Bader owns (hence the name – Robert’s Shiraz) located on the outer reaches of the Adelaide Plains. There is a small dollop of Zippy's Block in the Barossa Valley. This is a big, full flavored Shiraz produced from 50+ year old vines. The grapes are fermented on skin for 7 days. Stored for 24 months in barrel before bottling and another 6 months in bottle before release.

Well balanced and textured, this wine shows savoury notes of tar, leather and spice intermingled with chocolate and raisins. Soft persistent tannins and excellent length.
