6 in stock
Varietals: 100% Shiraz
Vines: Fruit sourced exclusively from a small block of 1969 planted Shiraz
Hand harvested small section of the Shiraz vineyard for this wine, destemmed gently to retain whole berries into a 600kg fermenter for fermentation, hand plunging twice daily. Pressed gently and gravity filled to two French oak barriques, 50% new.
Pretty violet perfume, ripe plum fruit and pepper spice. The palate has amazing density of fruit and weight with pepper spices. A framework of chary oak tannins in balance with the fruit surround the intense plum fruit and liquorice spiced flavour and layered texture. 98 Points, James Halliday Wine Companion.
