Quick Overview

"In excellent shape. Riper, fuller and sweeter (fruited) than you might expect of shiraz from this region but then, it’s loaded with savoury/peppery spice too. Both country and western.Glossy texture, velvety mouthfeel, cherry-plum and mint, cocoa-choc and all those savoury inputs.
Succulent and eager but with firm ribs of tannin.Like this very much. Excellent value too.

Product Description

The 2016 vintage presented very favourable growing conditions throughout, with few extremes and generally warm, dry conditions. Whilst the day time temperatures were slightly higher than average, the nights remained cool and this was reflected in the high quality of the red fruit in particular. Vibrant flavours evident when sampling in the vineyard carried through to the resulting wines with great natural acidity balanced against the rich bright flavours and the spicy fruit backdrop, indicative of the wines’ cool climate origins.



One word…..Moreish, our apologies Oxford dictionary for butchering the English language, but it truly is! A luscious, beautifully textured red wine, comfortable complementing the richest of winter fare, or savoured with friends relaxing on the deck in summer. Dark cherry and black fruit flavours, cool climate spice and elegance all gently integrate with fine silken tannins highlighting the careful selection of French oak barriques.


Adelaide Hills shiraz. 20% whole bunches. 17 days on skins. 20% new French oak. Estate grown, single vineyard etc. In excellent shape. Riper, fuller and sweeter (fruited) than you might expect of shiraz from this region but then, it’s loaded with savoury/peppery spice too. Both country and western.Glossy texture, velvety mouthfeel, cherry-plum and mint, cocoa-choc and all those savoury inputs.
Succulent and eager but with firm ribs of tannin.Like this very much. Excellent value too.
