Overview

The Estate Range of wines are vibrant expressions of varietal flavour. The Shiraz was made from fruit which was harvested at its optimum maturity. The wine was fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. Maturation for 14 months in small French and American oak barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness.

Expert Reviews

Rating 95 - James Halliday Published 01 August 2017

Estate-grown, one of only a few to hand-prune in Coonawarra, with meticulous canopy management, matured in American and French oak for 14 months. Good colour; this medium to full-bodied wine paints a picture of Coonawarra in rude good health, not a deceptive note anywhere in its body. Blackberry and blood plum are build on foundations of polished tannins and an echo of oak. Demands respect for its traditional estate winemaking.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aromas of cedar and spice overlayed with vanilla and coconut. Rich and elegant with trademark Coonawarra varietal characteristics of chocolate, pepper and cherry-plum sweetness. Fine tannins and well-balanced vanillin oak ensure a lingering finish. Medium bodied with excellent structure, the Estate Shiraz will repay cellaring for at least ten years
