Cool climate Shiraz has been rapidly growing in reputation and popularity in the past few years. At Nepenthe they saw the potential for Shiraz in the Adelaide Hills when vines were planted at their Hahndorf vineyard in 1999. It’s an ideal site for Shiraz with high altitude, low vigour soils and northerly aspect. Nepenthe's aim with this wine is to produce an elegant style with pure, berry fruit, spice and medium weight with great balance, structure and approachability.
