This is one of the most exciting wines I’ve released in decades. Growing conditions were tough but working with third generation growers is a delight. The fruit was exceptional and the finished wine reflects that quality. It’s robust and full with a well balanced caressing palate packed with flavour.

Winery Tasting Notes
First impressions are powerful. This wine makes a bold statement in the glass, dark and inky with heavy alcohol legs clinging to the side.
On pouring the first glass, the bouquet fills the room. It is intense with a sense of luxury and sophistication. It’s has a youthful vibrancy with harmoniously integrated aged characters of smoky oak and dark chocolate.
Plums and berries are obvious on entry then the palate builds with licorice, tobacco and leather overtones. This is an assertive wine with plump juicy tannins and spicy oak it has a background of dusty pepper and spice. Balanced and long on the finish, it has a velvety texture and chocolaty aftertaste. The wines from vintage 2014 are now starting to reveal their true quality and class.
I love the flavour and complexity of Barossa Shiraz, I t think it goes with everything from a gourmet burger to haut cuisine. Just enjoy it with any of your favourite dishes
… to infinity and beyond, but don’t wait that long. It will surprise you now!
