An elegant and aromatic cool climate Shiraz. Traditional winemaking in small batches; hand plunged in open fermenters, followed by 11 months maturation in new and seasoned French oak. Blackberries and dark plum fruit complemented by a hint of classic cool climate spice. 100% estate grown, made and bottled.
“Here’s one for the ultra savvy ‘cool climate shiraz brigade’. All power to them. This has plenty of get-up-and-go. It’s aflame with white pepper and leafy spice, both the nose and the palate bursting to show their savoury wares. The fruit comes ripe, well polished and svelte; it tastes of assorted berries and plums, garden herbs and woodsmoke, the perfect complement to the pops of spice. Tannin is then supple and well-formed. It’s not a big wine, naturally, but it refuses to be easily dismissed. It’s pretty with personality. This is a goodun”. 93 Points.
