Winemaker's Notes

The sixty-year-old Shiraz vines from Greenock that produced this wine ere ready to be uprooted due to the lack of yields and the reluctance of other companies to pay extra for this excellent fruit. After our repeated requests for access to these grapes, at 'the eleventh hour,' our growers decided to stop the bulldozer and retain a small area of these vines.

Critical Acclaim

"A profound offering, the 2002 Shiraz Eleventh Hour (it will be bottled in several months) represents great value for what it offers. This spectacularly concentrated, inky/purple-colored 2002 will take tasters to the Elysian fields of Shiraz. Aromas of acacia flowers, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, and exotic Asian spices are accompanied by a ripe, full-bodied, gorgeously textured, terrifically endowed Shiraz with no hard edges.
Range: 94-97"
