Description

Recommend opening up to 3 days ahead of drinking, but at least open a few hours prior to drinking for aeration and decanting.

Eyes

Deep vibrant purple / red.

Nose

A lifted floral bouquet with dark red berries. Dark chocolate, mocha, cigar box and pepper undertones bring complexity.

Mouth

An elegant Shiraz featuring red berries and anise and enveloped with warm oaky spice. Lovely balance of acid structure with fine, silky tannins creating a smooth and rich mouthfeel and a long and lingering finish. This wine has power, elegance and texture.

Body

Winemaking Notes

The grapes are handpicked from dry grown, low yielding vines planted in 1905. Naturally fermented in open 500L vats, gently hand plunged each day. The wine is matured in new French oak Hogsheads for 24 months.
