Blend: 94% Shiraz, 6% Viognier
The fruit is sourced from five hundred and twenty odd acres of vineyard at Langhorne Creek, one of
Australia's oldest wine grape districts just South East of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, on the
spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula.
Last century, a group of old school mates founded the vineyards in the Langhorne Creek wine region,
close to the original 19th-century plantings, in the traditional grape growing heart of the area. Planted
mainly to red grapes and beloved Shiraz, there are also some significant plantings of whites, including the pioneer plantings of Viognier in the district. With more than 50 acres of the variety planted, it is quite
possibly the largest planting in the Southern Hemisphere.
This wine is initially a fruit bomb, full of blackberries, juicy, soft and sweet. The full fruit flavors are married together
with some subtle blonde tobacco and fine grained mouth puckering tannin. Medium bodied and finely
tuned with refreshingly zippy tannins balanced by fine soft cedary oak flavors on a rounded fruit palate.
