This is a such a good little red wine displaying so much that speaks of Langhorne Creek. Dark plummy blackberry fruit flavours with a decent sprinkle of black pepper and dried herbs. It’s medium weight but with a deceptive power and length.

It's gorgeously appealing on the nose with Black Doris plum, ripe cherry, olive and vanillin oak characters, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate delivering ripe fruit intensity with silky texture, finishing long and delectable

A purple core remains deep out to the rim. The aromas are a combination of fresh blackberries and blueberries, plum jam and licorice strap. The palate is medium to full bodied. It is driven by dark fruits and offset by sweet spice and a hint of pepper on the finish. It is at once soft and pleasant while lingering on the palate and showing strong ageing potential.
The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for twelve days. The wine was matured in older oak barrels for twelve months prior to bottling.
Lower than average crops were the result of a dry flowering season. Temperatures were unusually mild. Harvest began on the 6th of February, with our Shiraz being picked on the 16th of March onwards. A long cool growing season led to excellent phenolic ripeness and intense colour and an inviting brightness on the palate.
