2017 Shiraz

The 2017 Shiraz is produced entirely from 100% hand-picked fruit from our Denmark block. Initial flavours of black cherry and redcurrent lead to a complex mid-palate of mocha and plum finishing with fine long tannins and the toasty spice and vanilla of 18 months maturing in premium French oak barriques.

This wine will improve with careful cellaring over the next 10 to 15 years.

Reviews for 2012 Shiraz

HALLIDAY 2015 Wine Companion – 95 points. Cellar to 2026

Not a big wine by any stretch but the proportions are excellent. It’s like the difference between standard house design and architectural: most things are effectively the same but somehow everything seems to fit/function better. Black cherry, peppercorn, slips of smoky oak, aged spicy meats. Refreshing acidity and savoury tannin. It just all works.
