Rolf Binder Bulls Blood Shiraz Mataro Pressings 2010
From its inception in 1955, Veritas Winery produced mostly fortified wines as well as the famous 'Bull’s Blood', a blend of Shiraz and century-old Mataro. Now many years later, second generation winemakers Rolf Binder, and his sister Christa Deans, are leading Veritas winery into the future under the Rolf Binder brand. Together they are producing exceptional wines using only the best Barossa fruit.
The Hungarian ‘Bikaver’ wine translates to ‘Bulls Blood’ anddates back to the 1500s when the Hungarians were fighting
the Turks. It was a wine for strengh in battle! The first Veritas ‘Bulls Blood’ was produced in 1967 by R. H. Binderand the label remains quite similar still today. It has become an Australian ‘cult’ wine and one that collectors enjoy.
Mulled spicy fruit, obvious oak that is mellow and rounded, rich chocolates that are subdued. Displays a mellow richness that is classy and definitive. The immediate evidence of weight, texture and spice launch the palate. The richness that leads onto the palate is wonderful; showing exotic spice, stone fruit, mulberries and hints of dark chocolate. The mid palate builds immediately with depth, texture and fine grainy tannins emerging. The back palate is solid, strong showing some wild berries, coating the mouth with great length and persistent flavours. The wine has powerful mouth filling weight and finishes with clear, round and soft but evident tannins that are a perfect blend of wood and fruit.
