Deep red in colour, the 2021 shows lovely intensity of fruits on the bouquet, with blackberry and hints of chocolate and truffle.
- Wine Club Members Price
Deep inky red.
Aromas of black olive and ripe raspberries and blackberries, with liquorice undertones and charry-oak spice.
Generous fruit sweetness on the palate, balanced by an outstanding structure and powerful depth and length of flavour.
Up to 15 years.
This Shiraz is made using fruit from two of our vineyards - both the cooler region of Polish Hill River and the warmer Armagh, north of Clare.
Derived from two of Clare Valley’s premium sub-regions – Armagh and Polish Hill River. Each batch is fermented separately in two and four tonne fermenters over a 12 day period and hand-plunged. The wine is left on skins post-fermentation, enhancing tannin complexity and maximising flavour. This is pressed to tank, then racked to oak (25% new French oak, 75% one and two year old French oak) for a total of two years. The wines are then carefully blended for bottling.
Alcohol - 14.5%
pH - 3.40

"Full colour; matured for 18 months in French hogsheads – probably all used. Medium-bodied and easy to enjoy with its stewed plum and blackberry fruit flavours, the texture open-weaved." - James Halliday
