The Covenant Shiraz is composed from several premium estate and privately owned vineyards throughout the Clare Valley.
The Covenant is a blend from selected vineyards located in the Clare Valley.
Selected parcels of Shiraz were harvested and fermented separately across a range of vineyard sites and allowed to mature in a range of new and more seasoned small French oak casks for eighteen months. The wines complexity and ageing potential further enhanced by bottling the final cuvée unfined and unfiltered.
Colour: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Aroma: Lifted and commanding, the nose reeking of fresh licorice, riper plums, liniment, hints of soy sauce and smoky char.
Palate: Richly flavoured with a strong linear focus, supple tannins and a long finish, the palate carries over sweet plums, fresh licorice and soy sauce in addition to introducing savoury meats and charcuterie to the mix. Perfectly encapsulated the regions precision and personality.
Alcohol: 14.5% v/v
Potential of at least 15 – 20 years with careful cellaring.
