About

This wine comes with a story, literally. On the label is transcribed a 600-word single sentence inner monologue written by Leah Swan. It's a stunning piece of prose - almost as good as what's inside the bottle.... Almost. This Shiraz comes from roughly 17-year-old vines planted on three vineyards in and around the Grampians. It's a wine of rare beauty at this price-point. Lovers of cool-climate Shiraz, this one is for you. Campbell Mattinson was totally enamoured with it. In his brilliantly crafted 95 point review he claims that, "If this was double its price I’d still be tempted." If you are a fan of the wonderful wines from this part of the world, you simply will not find better value than this.

What it Tastes Like

"The wine itself is outstanding. So beautifully fruited, balanced and structured. It’s alive with woody herbs, floral notes, olives, nuts and dark cherry-plum. There’s an edge of smokiness, almost a meatiness, along with traces of cracked black peppers. Feeling the curl of tannin here as it breaks through your mouth is like watching a wave form; it has that same kind or irresistible momentum, and that same kind of beauty. If this was double its price I’d still be tempted." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
