Magnificent and Full Bodied
P.B. Burgoyne Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2016
Region: Langhorne Creek, SA
The brand P.B. Burgoyne we use for wines we purchase from premium regions across South Australia. They are named after the real wine merchant Peter Bond Burgoyne who strode like a colossus across the Australian wine landscape around 1900. The wines are better today and the selection far wider but his style of wine discovery resides with us.
The beauty of wines from Langhorne Creek has not yet been recognised by many consumers though it is growing as they have moved from being unsaleable in say 1995 to now being sought by smart buyers. Wolf Blass saw the potential but this did not spread far which tells us that it is not the taste that captures consumers but other indicators. I can only describe what I found when drinking a glass that this has cthe qualities of the Barossa Valley and is cheaper.
