- 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
Acidity - 6.8g/L

93 Points - The Real Review
"Deep ruby with purple tints into the rim. Blood plum, bay leaf and clove aromatics. Full in weight and intensity, with dark berries, purple florals and exotic dark spices all filling the senses as it rolls long and deep across the palate. Tannins have a fine gravelly nature, accentuating the power." - Stuart Knox
91 Points - Halliday Wine Companion
"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

2023 Watervale Riesling
Rated 95 points by The Real Review, a great vintage in the Clare Valley has produced a perfectly balanced Riesling with notes of lemon and lime zest.
Minimal winemaker impact has produced a pure, vineyard defined wine with intense citrus, refreshing acidity and beautiful balance.
The crisp characters of our 2012 Watervale Riesling are the result of a standout vintage. This wine received Top Gold Medal at the 2012 Royal Adelaide Wine Show (Class 5) and Gold Medal at the 2012 Royal Queensland Wine Show (Class 1).
