The Tadpole Shiraz is an untamed animal — zero filtration, zero fining and minimal intervention.
The 2009 growing season presented us with good winter and spring rains. The warm days and cool nights leading up to harvest provided us with near perfect conditions.
As a result, the 2009 wines have wonderful finesse and brightness. Not cloying and over ripe they display remarkable richness and vibrance that will see them drinking well for the next 5-8 years.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep red, purple and black hues.
Black jubes, plums, cinnamon, raspberry conserve, Chinese 5 spices and savoury oak.
The front palate is dominated by plush, intense red fruits with subtle amounts of liquorice and chocolate fanning across the mid to back. The 2009 Tadpole is a structured wine with soft velvety tannins.
Lasagna, venison sausages with mash.
