Region: Strathbogie Ranges
Drink by: 2028
Another wonderful season for Shiraz in the foothills of the Strathbogie Ranges. Rainfall was minimal with lots of sunshine to ripen the small berries. Copped at just 2 tonne to the acre, intense deep colour in the berries is reflected in the lustre of the wine. Blackberry and dark fruit flavours combine with beautifully matched oak to produce a wine of complexity and true Shiraz characters. Lovely length lasts well after the last remnants of the bottle remain. A remarkable year.
Drink now or cellar for 8 to 10 years
