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.

- South Australia
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.

Winery Tasting Notes
The classic regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit along with hints of liquorice, plum and all-spice are all delicately interwoven with 1/3 new and 2/3 older oak barrels.
