Quick Overview

"Krondorf. 100 % Shiraz (BVRC30 clone). 50% new French oak foudre (2250L) woo hoo! 20% whole bunches.


Has perfume and spice laid on thick, and also this kind of ferrous thing going on that’s quite intriguing. Bramble fruit, grilled meat, very subtle cinnamon oak, medium bodied, lively and slightly sappy, fine emery tannin, with plenty of spice on a long cool finish. Savoury and lithe expression of Barossa Shiraz, and very nicely done too."
Rated : 94 Points Winefront.com.au

Product Description

Dark red almost black in colour.  Aromas of rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, insense, blue fruits, cola and tar.  Medium to full bodied, sweet fruited with mulberry, aniseed, bitter chocolate bullets and sweet tannins. Strikingly individual style of old Eden Valley clone Shiraz. Drink now or up to 15 years. 14.0% Alcohol.


Colour is deep red to black. The nose shows intense aromas of rosemary, sage, menthol, fennel, cured meats, blueberry and blackcurrant. The palate shape is typical of Eden Valley being a little more linear with elegant blue fruits - less flesh than the Barossan twins! Sweet, moreish, dense tannins completely saturate the mouth, resulting in incredible length of fruit and flavour. Drink with slow cooked Lamb - rosemary not essential. Unfined & Unfiltered. Alc 13.8%. Drink 2014-2034. Decant for 1 hour minimum.
