COLOUR                  Carmine.

NOSE                       Plum spice with a lick of French oak.

PALATE                   Svelte and sophisticated. The rick black berry and plum fruit meld beautifully with the peppercorn and anise spices.

VINTAGE NOTES

2017 was an exceptional year. A classic Yarra Valley growing season, a wet Spring followed by moderate daily temperatures and cool nights. Perfectly balanced vines allowed the grapes to ripen in optimal conditions. In these

years, the pristine fruit flavours combined with intensity and power give the wine balance and longevity.

 

W I N E M A K I N G

Handpicked and destemmed, the whole berries were cold soaked for 4 days prior to inoculation. 3% Viognier was co-fermented with the Shiraz in open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily and pressed to barrel at the end of fermentation.

PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS

  • 93/100 Points by TONI PATERSON MW (THE REAL REVIEW): A fragrant wine with impressive vibrancy and freshness. Rich red fruits with accents of rose. A true medium-bodied shiraz with a beautiful, supple mid-palate and bright, balancing acidity. It is a wine of seamless proportions and is set to age gracefully.
    • RANKED 7 of 59 2017 Shiraz blends of Australia.

 

  • 95/100 Points by JAMES HALLIDAY at the JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2020 RESULTS: Co-fermented with 3% viognier. Destemmed cold soaked berries, open-fermented, 18 months in French barriques, 32% new. The cool Yarra vintage has accentuated the attractive spice this wine always displays, the plum and blackberry fruit providing the flesh and sweetness. Velvety in texture, it flows seamlessly along the palate with fine, ripe tannin in escort.
