This gorgeous Barossa Shiraz used here sees small open fermenters followed by gentle basket pressing and then maturation in quality French oak for two years. The team’s usual procedure is destemming the grapes, a week on skins and hand-plunging twice daily. Although the wine is named ’50-Year-Old’, some of the vines exceed that by a considerable distance. Deep red in colour, there is a mix of red and darker fruits on the nose, especially blackberries, with graphite, chocolate, warm bitumen, leather, cloves and bay leaves. Some good complexity, even at this early stage. The texture is supple and seamless with the wine finishing with delightfully soft tannins. Some very chocolatey notes to conclude. Deceptively long, the finish would simply not go away (that is a good thing, a very good thing). Loved this. A stunning Barossa Shiraz with ten to fifteen years ahead of it, over which time, expect the score to rise even further.

Deep crimson. Fresh dark cherry, blackberry, dark plum liquorice aromas with mocha/ marzipan notes. Beautifully concentrated blackberry dark plum, liquorice flavours, fine loose knit chocolatey textures, very good mid-palate density and integrated vanilla/ mocha/ marzipan notes. Finishes chocolaty and bittersweet. Delicious wine with lovely fruit complexity, tannin structure and vinosity. Cork seal. Drink now – 2034

Winemakers Note

The grapes are destemmed, but not crushed, and spend seven days on their skins in open fermenters with hand-plunging twice daily to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins.

This is followed by careful basket pressing and 24 months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak in our cellars. 

The grapes from this wine come from a selection of Barossa old vine vineyards planted in the 1960s and 50s. 

These low-yielding “Barossa Old Vines” were planted before 1970 and are now fully mature on their own original rootstock. They have a root structure and trunk thickness that encourage diversity of flavour and character. Their worthiness has been proven over many vintages, consistently producing the highest quality fruit.
