This Shiraz is crafted from 60-year old vines in Greenock sub district of the Barossa Valley. The old vines were to be uprooted by the growers due to the lack of yields and the fact that other companies were reluctant to pay for those excellent, yet low yielding vines. After repeated requests by Jaysen and Dan, the vineyard was 'saved' at the eleventh hour resulting in this excellent wine as well as the very appropriate name.
"It exhibits an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, charcoal, mineral, black raspberry, and wild blueberry. Liqueur-like on the palate, it has layers of savory fruit, incipient complexity, and impeccable balance. Light on its feet, this gorgeous effort will be in its prime from 2012 to 2024." 94 Points

"Made by Dan Standish, this resembles the wines under
his own label in its sense of elegance and proportion.
It’s big, but not too big, with intriguing aromas
of smoke, blueberries and pepper, followed
up by flavors of blueberry, cherry and spice. Drink
