Vineyard Notes
A superb vintage of generally mild temperatures after a hot November. Generally fine through harvest with some showers in mid March. Rich wines were made from Shiraz and the Old Vines performed reliably, showing real class in the wines made.
Colour
Opaque purple hue.
Bouquet
Lifted sweet Shiraz berry characters on the nose with interesting notes of vanilla and blackberries.
Palate
The palate is svelte, medium weight and very complex and shows all the hall-marks of great Shiraz treated with good oak maturation to produce a great wine with good aging potential. It shows ample aroma, fruit balanced with perfect acidity and assuring dry tannins for aging potential. The finish is long and generous, leaving spicy berry flavours lingering on the palate.
