Winemaker's Notes

Consistently mild weather during the growing season and leading up to harvest encouraged optimal ripening. Weather conditions during harvest were perfect, making for a smooth vintage. Grape berries were quite small and since yields were down, flavor was concentrated and quality enhanced. A unique style of Aussie Shiraz, tasting of fresh berries rather than a berry compote or preserves.

Critical Acclaim

"A top value, this full-bodied yet supple Shiraz packs in the flavor, starting with dark, brooding fruit on the nose, developing intensely flavored mixed berries on the palate and finishing warm and long. Drink now."
