Winemaker's Notes

Fruit for the Reserve Yarra Valley Shiraz was sourced from only the best low cropping vineyards on the Yarra Valley floor which provides fruit with richer tannins, delicate flavors and intense fruit characters.

Rich magenta with a ruby hue. Intense fruit aromas of blackberries, mulberries and boysenberries combine with hints of black pepper, anise, violets and gardenias to produce a vibrant and aromatic wine. Soft and supple upon entry the wine extends to offer concentrated flavors of cracked black pepper, anise and coriander. Delicate and opulent, the mouthfeel is further enhanced by soft and velvety tannins to provide a signature cool climate Shiraz.

Critical Acclaim

"Fragrant black cherry and blackberry; medium-bodied, with very good structure and mouthfeel; fine, ripe tannins and quality oak. Screwcap. 13.7% alc."
94 Points

"This one has plenty of ripe, jazzy blackberry, raspberry and cherry flavors, but it floats across the mouth on an airy framework of fine tannins, open texture and a refreshing element of acidity. Hints of pepper add interest as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2014. "
