Much of this wine is made from 140 year old Barossa Valley Shiraz vines. The intense power and complexity of this creation from Mother Nature will continue to improve in the bottle over the next 15 years or more.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep purple with a vivid violet hue.
Decanting rewards with brooding aromas of dark berry fruit, briar and fragrant spice with a hint of aniseed.
A succulent full palate, laden with rich juicy blood plum and crushed mulberry fruit up front shadowed by a wave of velvety dark chocolate, coffee bean and clove spice. A further layer of savoury secondary notes flood and fill the palate in the form of quintessential Barossa earthiness and a meaty, smoky complexity from barrel fermentation. The underlying natural acidity harmoniously supports all these powerful elements toward a finish of lingering, fine velvety tannins.
Suits a hearty winter casserole, a premium cut of rare beef or otherwise serve with a good vintage cheddar.
