This wine is everything we've come to expect from a Barossa Valley Shiraz �loads of spicy dark fruit with flavoursome oak and supple tannins.

'Beautifully ripe and fragrant with blackberry, sweet cherry, vanilla, mixed spice and roasted nut characters, it's supple and juicy in the mouth delivering fleshy texture and silky flow. Flavoursome and delightfully appealing. At its best: now to 2028.' Wine Orbit

TASTING NOTES

This is a rich and full-bodied Shiraz with flavours of ripe forest fruits and baking spices balanced with toasty oak and supple tannin. Serve at around 16°C and enjoy with hearty dishes such as spicy hot pot, vegetarian stew, beef bourguignon, barbecued lamb.

SEASON

A classic vintage. It began with relatively warm weather in January and February. The following months through to the end of April provided perfect ripening conditions, with shiraz and grenache showing particular promise, with great colour and flavour. Our yields were slightly below average and the fruit was of outstanding quality.

WINEMAKING

Hand harvested in late March, early April. Fruit was destemmed and fermented in static overhead fermenters with regular pumping over. 12 months in a mix of old and new French oak barrels and quality French oak staves in tank. Egg white used as a traditional fining agent.
