Winemaker Notes

Made with 20% new French oak, this wine shows excellent integration of Shiraz fruit with the gentle use of oak creating a big, rich, juicy, smooth style of red, finishing with spicy elegance. Co-fermented with a small percentage of Viognier, the nose is delicately perfumed and the palate softened. The Gaffer is a flavorsome, fruit-driven, full-bodied Shiraz that is well balanced.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Shiraz The Gaffer which spent 12 months in a mix of new and used French oak. Dark ruby in color, this is a straightforward, fruity, easy to understand style of Shiraz with plenty of succulent blue and black fruit and good balance. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.
