The Barossa Valley is well known for Shiraz globally and for good reason being that its endless summers and infertile soils are totally and utterly suited to nurturing quintessential Barossa Shiraz. It requires little winemaking intervention and is all about marrying with the perfect selection of oak to provide a full, rich, opulent palate loaded with plum and blackberry fruit.

Winery Tasting Notes
Purple red with violet hue.
Aromas of stewed plum and raspberry, with drifts of demi glaze, damp ironstone and spice.
A smooth, beguiling palate of fleshy blackberry, blood plum and red berry fruit up front swathed in sweet charry oak. These primary characters provide a seamless progression through the palate unveiling subtle touches of spice, cherry chocolate, earthiness, tamarillo jam and tobacco leaf that are complimented by a savoury touch of meaty complexity. The finish is generous with persistent soft, ripe, supple tannins and a soothingly warm embrace of white pepper.
Well suited to any kind of rare roasted meat, steak and kidney pie, pan fried veal or braised veal shanks.
