The Shiraz (80-year-old vines) is sourced from our vineyard located on Seppeltsfield Road behind the Gnadenfrei church in the heart of Marananga on the renowned western ridge of the Barossa Valley where the soils are predominantly red-brown loams over red clay, amidst shattered ironstone and quartz.Daily sampling and tasting of the Shiraz grapes ensured that they were picked at optimal flavour ripeness.The Grapes were hand harvested and were destemmed and crushed into a single 5 tonne open top fermenter with heading down boards where twice daily pump overs were conducted to ensure maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the grape skins.At the conclusion of fermentation, the wine was pressed to a combination of 100% new French and American oak hogshead barrels for 19 months.Each barrel was tasted and careful selection took place before the final wine was blended. The wine is neither fined, nor filtered.

About the wine

Tasting notes

Colour: Dark purple core with a crimson rim.Aroma: Dense aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant, black olive and juniper interwoven with wafts of liquorice, vanilla bean and mocha chocolate.Palate: Fruit flavours of black plum, black cherries and raspberry coat the surfaces of the mouth with density and length. Complex notes of graphite and lead pencil add further complexity. Fruit core is framed by spicy, savoury oak playing a support role. A wine that will only get better with age

Expert review

A purplish-coloured shiraz of great depth and saturation. This has tons of character in the big Barossa vein with ripe sweet fruit aromas of dark berries and plum jam. Sweet and earthy spices, vanilla, toast and mocha threads add complexity, and there's an earthy hint of funkiness. It's a lush mouthful, full-bodied and slightly jammy, with ample barrel influence and plenty of ripe dry tannins.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
