Winemaker's Notes

Individual parcels of Shiraz from venerable old vineyards are the jewels in teh crown of the Barossa wine industry. Wild Witch vineyards nestled in the Lyndoch Hills is one of these rare gems. Traditional viticulture techniques handed down through many generations ensure that I have the most wonderful Shiraz grapes grown in the world. The concentrated spicy peppery aromas of this dry grown Shiraz tamed after two and a half years in new French oak. Hogsheads are full-bodied, voluptuous and opulent.

"The 2005 Wild Witch Shiraz is a bit richer, riper, and deeper. Opulent, dense, and sweetly fruited, this behemoth demands 8-10 years of cellaring and will offer pleasure through 2035."
