We produce two very elegant Shiraz wines plus a Sparkling Shiraz which have been crafted from fruit grown in one of McLaren Vale’s premier vineyards.
More interestingly our wines have been made from single vineyard estate grown fruit. Our winemaker made the decision not to follow methods commonly used in the industry by blending fruit. A sensible move? We think so! But we would like you to be the judge.
Both our wines are Big Reds and will appeal to people who like a robust wine with distinctive fruit and berry characteristics. They have been matured in French oak, and although they will make excellent drinking wines now, they will improve greatly with age.
This new maker has two ripping Shirazes. The Reserve is concentrated, rich and ripe, but not over the top or alcohol-hot; rather it’s chock-full of bold plum and chocolate flavours with a lick of liquorice. Fruit-sweet, big and chunky.
