Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 56% Shiraz, 36% Grenache and 8% Mourvedre.

Vintaged from Shiraz grown on the Draycott block, together with Grenache and Mourvedre from the Olive Hill block and matured in seasoned French and American oak barrels.

A flavorsome, medium-bodied red showing good depth of fruit and palate complexity, giving rise to a supple, entertaining style of red capable of short term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Velvety in texture, this is generous with its plum and blackberry flavors, shaded with toasty, creamy notes, finishing expressively. Has fine tannins that don't get in the way. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2015."
