90% Shiraz, 5% Malbec, 3% Marsanne and 2% Viognier from the Frankland River region. Lifted aromas of cedar combine seamlessly with black pepper spice and subtle cloves, blue fruits, young berries and Damson plums to create a soft juicy palate. Lovely textural tannins produce an elegant cool climate Shiraz.A wet spring provided good early vine growth followed by a dry and warmer than average January and February. The summer cooled considerably in early March slowing ripening with the Shiraz harvest starting on the 17th March and concluding the 26th March. Fruit was harvested in clean and ideal condition.
NoseThe bouquet is spicy, earthy, savoury and far from simple although fruit-driven
PalateThe palate is silky and elegant, with juicy fruit and savory tannins.
AppearanceDeep Ruby Red
“This organic wine is a fruit driven expression of a shiraz. Dark plum is dominate with a long textured finishing, including hints of nutmeg and gloves. Shiraz doesn't always need to be from Barossa.”
