About The Wine

As the above suggests, this is the best wine to come out of the WC stable from the 2013 vintage.

It is a blend of two Eden Valley vineyards, you can guess what their names are.

This wine represents not only the quality and value inherent in this range but also an unwillingness to compromise.

The flagship wine from the previous vintage was called Francis and Nicole. Looking at this wine prior to release, it looked special, though not the exceptional standard they demand for the F&N.

That said, you get this cheaper and it is a sensational version of SA Shiraz when seen through the context of value from the region.

In his sterling 95 point review, Campbell Mattinson said, “As this wine breathes its class becomes more and more apparent. It’s a wine to hang you hat on.”

We couldn’t agree more…

What It Tastes Like

Dark fruit, spice clove and salted licorice. Next level of depth and complexity, compared to the Barossa little brother. Pretty heavy duty but still has a finesse to it. Big guns but plenty of manners, or something like that. It strides through the mouth, with ropes of tannin trailing in its wake. Love what these boys do with Shiraz. It is the model of the modern SA Shiraz.
