This is a sumptuous red wine that will reward many years careful cellaring.
The mature Shiraz and Viognier vines of the B&V Vineyard achieve a natural balance of moderate growth and low crop on its micaceous schist derived soils. The vineyard is situated on the western escarpment of Mount Barker on the eastern edge of the Adelaide Hills.
The climate and soils of the special B&V Vineyard terroir closely resemble those of Cote Rotie in the northern Rhone Valley in France where Shiraz and Viognier are native varieties.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bigger & richer than the 2010, still with the elegance of a cool climate Adelaide Hills Shiraz.
A dark, brooding, spicy, vibrant dry red. The aroma has loads of spicy dark fruit, and cherries and blackberries are complemented by a touch of anise.
The palate is full and rich, with sweet black fruits and continues the spicy savoury theme. Lovely cinnamon and toasty oak complement fine, abundant tannins.
