Winemaker's Notes

The color is deep red-purple. An elemental and ethereal wine with rich, ripe red and black cherry/plum fruits overlaid with spice, ginger and vanillin oak characters. Sweet, rich, and concentrated, this blockbuster Barossa Valley Shiraz is bountiful in blackberry jam and plum fruits. These primary fruit flavors are complimented by sweet oak and gripping solid tannins, which results in a wine with exceptional palate and length.

Much of this wine is made from 140-year-old Barossa Valley Shiraz vines. The intense power and complexity of this creation from Mother Nature will continue to improve in the bottle over the next 10+ years.

Much of the credit for the best Shiraz made in the Barossa is due to the old vines. The fact that these vines still exist is largely due to a far-sighted quarantine scheme, in which South Australia was spared the phylloxera outbreak, which devastated the vineyards of Europe, America and subsequently parts of Australia in the late 1800's.

The depth of fruit flavors in this wine is a reflection of the extended ripening conditions and moderate yields of the 2001 vintage.
