    Winemaker Notes

    The inaugural release of this wine comes from a small plot of Shiraz on the wonderful ‘Fireblock' plot of dry grown vines planted back in 1926. The darkness of color gives you some hint at the power of the wine. Intensely flavored, yet the wine has a charm and elegance about it. A superb example of Clare Valley Shiraz.

    This is a new label owned by Bill and Noel Ireland (of Flinders Bay fame). The name refers to the plot of dirt that was planted back in 1926 predominantly to Grenache. It had been previously designated a “fireblock” given its proximity to the railway line, and out of concern that sparks from the steam locomotives could start bushfires!! I managed to persuade Bill and Noel to capture the magic of these old dry grown Grenache and Shiraz vines.

    With a continuous history of winemaking dating back to 1852, the stone buildings and wineries of the Clare Valley add to the region's striking and varied beauty. It is a high quality producer of long-lived, intensely flavored and strongly structured table wines, virtually all of which are made in limited quantities.
