Since its inaugural release in 1979 this piece of liquid history has become one of the most sought after and collectable wines throughout the world.
Offers ripe berry and raspberry fruits with savory and spice notes - a complex mid-weight palate and elegant lifted finish. This wine is our premium marque; its elegance, intensity and complexity on the palate reflect the depth of flavor that can be achieved from vines planted 150 years ago. They are a living treasure, and a single vineyard release from vines of this age is a rare feat in the wine world, and one of which we are immensely proud.
Enjoy now - or cellar for another 20 years plus if you have the patience.
"The 2005 1860 Vines is just magic. Deep garnet in color, it displays intense aromas of blackberry, smoky bacon, earth, cumin and allspice with touch of roasted nut. The medium to full-bodied palate is seriously savory with iron ore, game and truffle nuances countered by crisp acid and a medium-high level of very finely grained tannins. The finish is very long and complex. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+."
The Wine Advocate
"Just over an acre of the original shiraz vines have survived on a sandy knoll at Tahbilk, where phylloxera fears to tread. Those ancient vines produce a scant crop, their fruit remarkably fresh in 2005, a wine that runs on character rather than fruit and alcohol. There's the scent of the outback, of eucalyptus groves and saddle leather. There are also hints of violets, black olives and sage. The fruitiness of the wine becomes more apparent after three days of air, with floral scent of raspberries driving the wine forward. An Australian classic to cellar and a refreshing shiraz to drink."
Wine & Spirits
"Strong colour; dark berry fruits, spice and licorice; different flavour register; tannins persistent but will soften before the fruit."
