Background
Classic Clare Valley Shiraz. One case to drink – one to put away.
Vintage Notes
An excellent vintage now regarded by some as a great red vintage in South Australia. Lower yields from dry conditions but wonderful ripening in red varieties compensated growers. The beginning of a prolonged dry period through to 2020.
Vineyard Notes
A single site wine, picked from a single block of Watervale Shiraz that has some pedigree of consistently growing flavoursome spicy Shiraz.
Style
Classic Clare Valley Shiraz delivering value in spades. Delicious juicy fruit wrapped in firm tannins.
Colour
Ruby crimson halo deepening to deep dark blood red.
Bouquet
Intense spice, ripe plum and subtle French oak.
Palate
Rich, sweet, dark forest berries with intense spice balanced by fine by firm tannins. Some mocha, dark chocolate and coffee cradled in firm savory tannins. Passion contained.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
6-8 years comfortably
