Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Parable is made entirely from the grapes of two premium vineyards in the McLaren Vale region. Both vineyards are low yielding, traditionally managed and are between 30 and 45 years of age. Traditional vinification techniques using small separate batches of fruit, open fermenters and basket pressing has created a full bodied and flavoursome Shiraz. The wine was matured for 2 years in small American and French oak casks before careful blending and bottling unfiltered to ensure the preservation of the intense varietal characters.

Critical Acclaim

"While it’s splitting hairs, I thought the 2004 Shiraz Parable was slightly better than the Testament. Made from two vineyards, 35- and 45-years-old, it was given an upbringing similar to that of the Testament cuvee, but seems to possess slightly more aromatic nuances, and just as much body, concentration, and intensity. It also may reveal more floral, blue, and black fruits in the mouth. This stunningly profound Shiraz should age effortlessly for 15-20 years. "
