Quick Overview

....... Spice, liquorice and leather notes play keen and attractive roles. Cranberries and cherries, sweet and spicy. Strings of herbs flow through the finish. Quite delicious."
Rated : 93 Points Winefront.com.au
"Full crimson-purple. Pure, intense, its characters border on minerality; great vitality and length. The reason? Its alcohol, more than 1% lower than the Barossa Valley average. 13.4% alc; screwcap. 96 points; drink to 2035; $38 James Halliday"



Product Description

The Block 8 sub-section of our Resurrection vineyard is located at the highest point in the north-eastern corner where the soils become shallow and rocky. This section is planted to Maywald clone Shiraz (100 year old selection) which following harvest, was open fermented before maturation in aged oak hogsheads. Older oak was used to accentuate the incredibly vibrant and fragrant varietal characters that this unique combination of clone, soil and location provides.


"From the Ebenezer sub-region. From the highest point of the vineyard, where the soils are “shallow and rocky”. Open fermented, left on skins for 10 days, then into all (used) French oak. Indeed all third fill oak, so there’s very little oak flavour imparted here.


It’s light, it’s lively, it remains tasty and well-structured. It just goes to show that you’re don’t need to be balls out to still manage a bit of gravitas. Spice, liquorice and leather notes play keen and attractive roles. Cranberries and cherries, sweet and spicy. Strings of herbs flow through the finish. Quite delicious."
