Shiraz grown in cool-climates such as the Adelaide Hills is beginning to establish a name for a style that displays elegance, subtle richness and savoury characters. Our vineyard is a perfect site for growing Shiraz in the Adelaide Hills and allows for the crafting of a wine with elegance and finesse with developed ripe characters while retaining typical cool-climate characteristics.

Crimson-purple; the fragrant bouquet exudes red cherry, plum and warm spice aromas, the medium-bodied palate carrying those flavours on with the addition of oak and earth notes giving the wine a very attractive savoury mouthfeel and long finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
Winemaking responsibilities rest with Peter Leske with support provided by Mark Kozned. Peter’s two decades of experience with one of the Adelaide Hills most renowned wineries provides the platform for the production of our premium cool climate wines.
The wine exhibits a deep red-brick colour with purple hues on the edge.
There is a rush of red fruits and black pepper aromas on the nose.
The palate displays sweet cherries, blackberries, dark fruits and mocha which are all balanced with the textured tannins and supported by the judicious use of new and old French oak barrels.
The wine is ready to drink now and will cellar well and reach its full potential in 10 to 15 years.
