Our grapes are sourced from our vineyards in the Adelaide wine region, with this wine using Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and McLaren Vale.
A mixture of vinification techniques, touched by tradition, are used to capture each vineyard’s character.
The wine is matured separately in oak vats and tanks with a smaller portion in small barrels before blending.
The aim is to produce a fresh style of Shiraz with structure but not reliant on oak flavour or tannin. Some minor varieties including Grenache and Tempranillo add a layer of complexity to easy drinking Shiraz.
Colour: Deep cherry red.
Nose: Fresh lifted mulberry / raspberry
fruit and light mocha aromatic is nicely weighted by subtle oak.
Palate: Medium bodied with fresh, crisp acidity and nice length of fruit. Persistent finish with long fruity after taste and aged notes from bottle maturation.
Potential: This vintage has produced fruity wines that have medium term cellaring potential.
Foods: Steak, lamb roasts and hearty stews.
Technical: Alcohol: 14.0% , pH 3.53, TA 6.2
Vintage: The 2017 vintage was excellent in all our regions with excellent ripeness and acidity.
