Winemaker's Notes

Leasingham has historically been recognized for its production of high quality red wine and Leasingham Bin 61 Shiraz represents true regionality and value in the red wine market. With all the hallmarks of the Clare Valley and Leasingham style this wine displays sweet fruit concentration and boldness of structure. The 2003 vintage provided a warm ripening period, resulting in the production of intense berry fruits and bold, fine tannins.

Deep ruby red with purple hues and brilliant clarity, and a bouquet that displays intense spice, chocolate and coffee. The palate shows intense ripe blueberry and raspberry characters with layers of dark chocolate and mocha in the mid palate and a clean, lingering spicy finish. This wine is a Clare Valley Shiraz that shows all the hallmark characters of a warm year in the valley with soft, elegant tannnins in abundance. A great wine to drink now and/or cellar for the next decade.

Food suggestion: Enjoy with suckling pig and salt bush lamb.
