This truly is an iconic wine – twice named “Best Shiraz” at international wine shows, it has been produced every year since 1997 [with the exception of 2011]. Crafted from low-yielding old vine Shiraz parcels grown along the golden hillsides in Leasingham, vinified separately and aged for 20 months in a selection of new and one year old French oak hogsheads. Bottled without fining or filtration. This was a standout vintage and this truly is an opulent wine! Bright red in colour with crimson hues, this wine has an exalted nose of ripe plums, chocolate and exotic spices. The balanced palate shows precise flavours of fresh berries, cherries and dark chocolate, with the influence of French oak beautifully complimenting the well-integrated tannins. Easily consumed whilst young, but will reward patience, and will cellaring for at least 12-16 years. This magnificent treat is a superb match with lamb or hard mature cheeses!
