Tasting Notes

The ultimate cool climate Shiraz with intense red and black fruit characters on the palate, stretched into spiced flavours on a persistent finish. Tart dark cherries dominate the nose, with white pepper notes coming overlaying.

Sourced from a single block of 26 year-old Shiraz at Dixons Creek, the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed and chilled before being crushed into open-top vats for fermentation on skins. 13% alc/vol.
