Overview

Brick red colour with indigo purple hue. Vibrant bouquet with plum, spice and currant characters. A lively palate expressing toasty berries, vinosity, spices and stalk supported by long gritty tannins. Concentration of elegant flavours, powerfully intense yet exhibiting real elegance and charm. Pepper and plum, a touch of leather and spice. Generous and rich, showing very well in its youth, a long, illustrious future is assured.

Winery Profile

Fireblock (formerly Old Station Vineyard) is owned by Bill and Noel Ireland, who purchased the almost-70-year-old Watervale vineyard in 1995. The vines planted in 1926 (3ha of shiraz and 2ha of grenache) are dry-grown, the riesling (1ha) was replanted to the Geisenheim clone in 2008 when town water became available. Watervale Riesling, Old Vine Shiraz and Old Vine Grenache are skilfully contract-made, winning trophies and gold medals at capital city wine shows
