Description

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.

“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.

This shiraz has the same generous red fruit and spice on the palate as the Shiraz Viognier, however, instead of the mid palate richness there is purity and balance which sets it apart.
