Overview

The Barossa is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz vines and the grapes for this wine come from just four vineyards in the Eden Valley, Lyndoch, Nuriootpa and Vine Vale sub regions of the Barossa. The low-yielding vines were planted more than a century ago around the time construction of the Château itself began.

Expert Reviews

Comes from three vineyards in the Eden Valley, Marananga and Vine Vale areas of the Barossa, and given Rolls Royce treatment in the winery; the smooth and supple palate is no more than medium-bodied, but is beautifully balanced and structured; black fruits, mocha, fruitcake, spice and licorice are all woven into the whole, French oak also adding a touch of class. Rating 95 Drink by 2029 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2012)
