Plush. Thick. A salubrious sheen of impeccably poised oak and sensitively extracted grape tannins meld with just enough freshness. Generosity, the calling card. The fruit and arsenal of herb- to spice-inflected flavours sing above the structural frame: black cherry, damson plum, licorice, Asian spice, hoisin and baby back ribs. Slick, long and immensely satisfying. Read more

Tasting Notes

This shiraz is a deeply concentrated wine expressing dark chocolate and boysenberry flavours with intriguing hints of French oak. The palate is powerful and long with an elegant finish. Dark fruit flavours, which are mouth filing and generous, combined with a tight framework to keep the wine focused.

Winemakers Note

All fruit is hand harvested then destemmed. The whole berries are fermented on skins for seven days between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius, undergoing gentle cap management to extract pure fruit characters and tannins. Post fermentation the skins are hand dug out of the fermenter and the free run and pressings wines are separated before going straight to oak for maturation where they are racked and returned only once. After maturation the individual barrels are tasted before blending to select only those that truly demonstrate style and quality.
