Shiraz 2008

This is ’s first 100% Shiraz.

As the vineyard has matured the quality of the fruit has improved, 2008 was the first opportunity to produce a single varietal wine. Especially selected barrels of Shiraz were kept separate for the strength of fruit expression.

Only 70 doz. made.

The vineyard is low cropping each year, but only the best fruit is hand picked and selected for its flavour. This is the first release of a Shiraz in the “house style”.

The aroma shows a five spice character behind a slightly peppery fruit note. This carries through to the palate where it supports an elegant well balanced structure. American oak was used for the maturation of this wine and its contribution is a soft vanilla flavour with silky tannin texture.

14.1% vol.

This wine is so enjoyable.

It’s not a quaffer because it has class, complexity and flavours all sitting well together.

No in-depth analyses required.
