About The Wine

With the success of the 2012 Ironheart Shiraz, the anticipation for this release has been palpable.

2013 was a year much like the previous, early ripening followed by a reprieve from mother nature which allowed this hallowed part of the Yangarra vineyard to develop richer, more complex flavours.

And it is all about the vineyard with this wine. The ‘Ironheart’ site sits dead centre of the Yangarra vineyard. The vines are only 14 - 18 years old but the Ironstone soils on this site give an intensity not often seen in vineyards of this age. It has power and precision and a presence that make you sit up and take notice.

Huon Hooke has already rated the 2013 vintage 95 points commenting that it is “tremendously concentrated (with) amazing structure…“ and this should be another great chapter in this virgining icon of the McLaren Vale region.

What It Tastes Like

“The dark Ironheart Shiraz is wound up like a coil, put it in a decanter and let it spring open. As a young wine the typical dark fruit aromas are elusive, but on the palate the power and concentration of the fruit unfolds, with big soft tannins so typical from this site, and the iron-like sanguine finish. A wine made to sustain the years ahead .” - Peter Fraser
