A stunning cool climate Shiraz co-fermented with 3.5% Viognier displaying generous ripe red fruit, subtle pepper & spice, and an enticing floral lift. The viognier adds rich mid-palate ripeness to the palate. Cellar to up to 2032, however, the sweet spot is around 7 years where the fruit and spice is integrated with silky tannins.
Gold, 95 Points. Halliday Wine Companion 2022
“Always a good show of deep plum fruit and spice with the French oak barriques (25% new) adding cedary flavour and support. It’s delightfully spicy and a little peppery, with tangy, juicy acidity and tannins holding sway. Another year in bottle will have this in complete harmony, although it is already a smart wine. ” Published 12 May 2022.
