Fruit is sourced from the 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.

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Estate has a baking spice laced, peppery nose with red cherry, black raspberry and kirsch notes. Light to medium-bodied, it is a lovely example of a spicy / peppery cool-climate Shiraz with tons of red berry characters supported by rounded tannins and lively acid, finishing with great persistence. Rating 90+ - Drink by 2020, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (MAR/2016).
Winery Tasting Notes
A medium-bodied wine with complex spice and white pepper, soft plum, cherry, violets and a dense core of dark fruit. This wine embodies the structural and layered elegance that Great Southern Shiraz is known for; illustrating a well balanced use of savoury, dusty oak, which combined with tight acid structure provides great length and character.
