Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Mid red hues are consistent with its age

Aroma

Hints of earth and evident cool-climate fruit: notes of minty freshness still tell us of its Padthaway origins.

Palate

The palate is seriously weighty, with earthy flavours matching those aromas. It also shows some obviously-Shiraz flavours of ink, hints of olives, and subtle spice.

Cellaring Potential

It’s food-friendly because of its cool-climate savoury structure, and with its tannins still fresh and dry even after a few years in bottle; will reward ageing until at least 2016.

Food Matching

A classic Shiraz deserves a classic dish: rosemary-crusted rack of lamb; fresh rabbit and herb pie; or maybe a (gentle...) lamb curry.
