Much of this wine is made from 140 year old Barossa Valley Shiraz vines. The intense power and complexity of this creation from Mother Nature will continue to improve in the bottle over the next 15 years or more.
This young Babe will definitely reward your patience for as long as you are prepared to let her lounge around in the comfort of your cellar. Youthful and understated with a potential to be silky and glamorous…this Babe's a keeper!!

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep rosewood red with a vivid violet hue
A little shy and subdued but coaxed by decanting rewards with heady aromas of brooding dark berries, plum, briar ,cedary spice and an elemental tarry note.
A broodingly full, hedonistic palate which builds in intensity throughout commencing with blood plum and mulberry fruit, followed by a horde of dark chocolate coated cherry all adding richness and filling every curve of the palate and coalescing consummately with
secondary characters of classic Barossa oor earthiness, mocha, spice and a meaty barrel fermented complexity. Immensely generous, with verdant power, the palate culminates in a lingering finish of lithe \tannins and a warming if not congenial touch of white pepper.
Well suited to a premium cut of rare dry aged beef otherwise a treat with some homely braised veal shanks and finish with a good vintage cheddar.
