Fruit is sourced from our old Wyjup and Bouverie vineyards which have an average vine age of over 40 years. All the vineyards grow on free draining gravel loams around the Mt Barker area in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The natural balance of these old vines gives wines of great finesse and elegance.

Composed, well-tailored wine. Complex nose of autumn leaves, tar, sweet blackberry and smoky oak. Blends savoury, spicy, leafy elements with powerful, dark-berried fruits confidently and well. Has a seamlessness to it. Has a reach of fine, rippling tannin working positively throughout. Difficult to fault. Rating 95 - Drink by 2026 CM, Wine Companion (DEC/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Our Shiraz has ripe black cherry and plum flavours with underlying spice and pepper. In excellent vintages a note of violets is seen, as with the 2012. A velvety, textural palate has layered complexity and fine silky tannins supporting the dense, dark fruit. The elegance reflects the cool climate region. A classic Great Southern Shiraz with a long life ahead.
