Vineyard Notes

Early temperatures in October and November were well above average…enhancing rapid development. Mild dry ripening conditions later combined with low yields led to good varietal expression in Shiraz. The tendency for high alcohol was managed carefully. Barossa harvest was over a month early beginning 10th February.

Tasting Notes

Dark plum, purple hue. Lifted savoury spice, Shiraz characters showing bottle development on the nose with subtle notes of spice ,rosemary and stewed plums.
The palate is full, round and very complex and shows all the hall-marks of great Shiraz with fine oak maturation , developing to produce great vinosity. This wine shows ample aroma, fine structure charming balance of fruit, acidity and ample velvet tannins .The finish is classy, long and generous, leaving spicy dark chocolate flavours lingering on the palate. It is well set up for further ageing.
