Overview

2009 was a dry vintage in the Clare Valley. Our dry grown Shiraz was hand picked in small shrivelled bunches, with full flavour development and huge intensity.

The wine spent 30 days on skins, then fifteen months in mainly French oak, 25% of which was new.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Red to purple, nearly opaque.

Aroma/Palate

Intense, tarry Shiraz dominates any oak flavours – the oak only serves to amplify the fruit, and the “tarry” character is indicative of fruit from very old vines. The wide spectrum of generous Shiraz flavours, with some lovely high tones, distinguishes the higher altitude of the Clare Valley from other warm regions. Full palate and smooth, lasting finish.

Cellaring

This is a lovely example of old vine Shiraz from a good vintage. It will soften over the next 5 – 7 years, and live for many more.
