About

Shiraz is where Eldorado Road's heritage lies, and this is their pinnacle release. It comes from an impossibly old, restored vineyard in the Glenrowan district, with the idea being to pay "tribute to the persévérance of these remarkable old vines." Judicious winemaking has further replicated how this wine would have been made back in the vines' youth in the 1890's, with minimal intervention, open fermentation and basket pressing into French oak puncheons (half new) and the addition of a small portion of Trebbiano (Ugni Blanc) that is scattered throughout the Shiraz vines. It's a stunning wine. It is definitely full-bodied but while it oozes power it never once feels hot, heavy or over extracted. It has an easy, natural forcefulness, with flavours that go on and on and on. A whopping 96 points from James Halliday and 95 points from Campbell Mattinson, and with only 111 dozen made, this is just one of those special wines either to enjoy now or tuck away in the cellar. Magic stuff.

What it Tastes Like

"It’s a pearler of a wine. Top notch. Grunty with tannin, alive with acidity, naturally complex and while laden with dark, blackberried, almost leathery fruit, it maintains a keen liveliness. It’s one of those wines where you put it in your mouth and immediately think: hello, now we’re talking. It’s a ripper." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
