Winemaker Notes

Not a sledgehammer style, this Barossa Shiraz is made for drinking! Soft, slurpy and textured it is balanced with good acidity, which refreshes the palate and makes you go back for a second / third glass. Sourced from 3 unique vineyards, it is fruit laden, savoury and dangerously easy to drink! It is matured for 15 months in 100% old French oak hogsheads to allow the fruit to express itself.

Garnet red with purple hues color

A complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice.

Pa l a t e Vibrant dark cherry and blackberry with a hint of ‘wombat rolled in all spice' balanced with an even, textural palate with soft, supple tannins

Ce l l a r i n g Drink up, but also a 5-8 year proposition.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Matured in seasoned oak on yeast less for 15 months, the 2008 Mother’s Milk Shiraz displays a very deep garnet-purple color. The nose begins with a whiff of rubbery reduction giving way to warm blackberry, kirsch, tar and licorice aromas plus hints of nutmeg and coffee. Full-bodied with medium-firm fine grained tannins, very high acid and plenty of fleshy, spiced-up fruit, the finish is long. Drink it now to 2015.

The Barossa Zone encompasses the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here.

Barossa Valley of course is the most important and famous wine growing region in all of Australia where 140+ year-old, dry-farmed Shiraz vines still produce inky, purple and dense juice for some of Australia's best wines.

In the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to famous Shiraz vines from the 1800s but the region produces also some of Australia’s very best and age-worthy Rieslings.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
