Winemaker's Notes

It is no secret that McLaren Vale is home to some of the best Shiraz in Australia. This Shiraz from the excellent 2013 vintage is no exception.

This Shiraz has a vibrant array of red berries, plum and a hint of spice on the nose. It also showcases leaner leathery notes. The palate is dry, with warm toasty oak characters. A rich savoury Shiraz with a firm tannin structure.

A rich, gamey Shiraz that is best enjoyed with a home made Beef Wellington. Bon Appetit!

Traditional open fermentation with our own yeast selection, then minimal intervention during maturation in both French and American oak barrels. Alcohol: 14.11%

Shiraz Challenge
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Dense purple-crimson; an impressive estate-grown wine, speaking as eloquently of its place as its variety; black cherry, plum, spice, licorice and dark chocolate all contribute in varying ways to its bouquet and medium-to full-bodied palate, with balanced oak and tannins

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright, clear crimson-purple; an elegant, fragrant wine that carries the same regional expression as the Í10, but a very different vintage message, here on the light side of medium-bodied, red fruits dominant, the tannins fine.
