Winemaker's Notes

A regional soulmate to the 2005 Covenant Shiraz, the Testament provides an interesting reflection of the terrior based comparisons between The Clare and Barossa Valleys.

Made using our preferred traditional Kilikanoon winemaking style, and sourced from both our Barossa estate owned vineyards, the Testament displays the opulence and textural style that the Barossa is so renowned for. Intensely varietal, exhibiting chocolate and mocha notes, sweet vanillin and charry oak flavors complex and come so successfully together to provide a rich and rewarding palate experience.

An ageing potential of at least 12 - 15 years with careful cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Shiraz "Testament," from the Barossa sub-regions of Greenock and Vine Vale, is more deeply colored and glass-coating than the Covenant. It offers up a fragrant perfume of smoke, game, violet, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. Rounder and richer, it also has more grip and structure, with 6-8 years of aging potential. Drink this powerful Shiraz through 2025."
