This is an ideal match with refined meat dishes such as roast lamb, Wagyu, terrines and stews.
14 months French Oak Barrels
Dark ruby red.
Aromas of intense dark cherry, mocha and roasted hazelnuts with underlying pepper nuances.
Clean full-bodied flavours of bright blueberry, pepper and figs, cloaked by soft, silky tannins. A satisfyingly long finish of toasty blackberry and soft black pepper.
This Shiraz is from our oldest vines, planted in 1971. It was crushed and fermented on skins for 8 to 10 days in open-ended oak barrels, and hand plunged to maximise fruit aroma and flavour without excessive tannin extraction. Pressings and Free Run were combined, and the wine was transferred to new French oak Hogsheads for 14 months. Cool conditions in early spring enabled a subsequent long growing season. A warm dry summer subsided into ideal cooler autumn conditions prior to harvest.
