Charles Cimicky 'Trumps' Shiraz 2012
Vinous Media 91
"Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by cola and Indian spices. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a lively note of peppery spices. Closes sappy and very long, with a touch of bitter chocolate and youthful tannic grip. -- Josh Raynolds" ~ JR

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Trumps Shiraz is scented of crushed blueberries and blackberries with hints of charcoal, coffee and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with black fruit flavors and is framed by medium level, rounded tannins and just enough acid to refresh on the finish with good length. Drink it now to 2018." ~ LB

"100% Shiraz . It was once customary for a small group of zealous Barossa pioneers to regularly seek the cellar retreat of an old vineyard cottage. Within the cool stone depths of this hidden refuge, these normally hard working men whiled away many a contented hour with both cards and wine. Now a lingering part of Barossa history, the crumbling remains of this cottage still stand amidst venerable old vines that constantly produce this excellent Shiraz that always, “comes up trumps.”

Sourced from estate-owned vineyards in and around Lyndoch. The "Trumps" name is derived from the Euchre playing that occurred in the down time by the workers of an original "Trumps" vineyard; Daylight Chamber."

Czech immigrant Karl Cimicky founded Karlsburg Winery in 1973. In the early 90’s Karl’s son Charles began to take a keen interest in winemaking and the ‘good’ wines started turning into awesome wines. In addition to top of the line fermenters and barrels, Cimicky also has an estate bottling line, something of a rarity in Australia, allowing him to personally control all facets of production. Charles Cimicky produces rich, voluptuous, generous wines with superb balance. Apart from minor drip irrigation in January and February, the vines are dry grown, cover-cropped and organically fertilized. Now in his late forties Charles Cimicky is one of the most quality-driven, meticulous winemakers in South Australia." ~ Winery notes
