About

The Ironheart Shiraz is a blend of the best barrels from the most 'profound' block of Shiraz on the biodynamically grown Yangarra estate in McLaren Vale.

This, the most distinctive of the twelve blocks of Shiraz on the Yangarra vineyard, yields Shiraz fruit of immense concentration and complexity. The wine has an easy power and authority, a commanding presence and a wine built for great things in coming decades.

The 2014 roused The Wine Front's Campbell Mattinson to near rapture. In his impassioned 96 point review, Mattinson calls for the drinker to, "Go on a fitness kick, eat healthy, do your best to be around in 20 years. This is a shiraz for the ages." And with other resounding reviews such as 97 points from James Halliday and 95 points from Huon Hook, 2014 is one of the finest releases from Fraser and crew to date.

What it Tastes Like

"If you’re going to make a powerful statement then give it the scaffolding to endure. This is a McLaren Vale shiraz to reckon with. It’s inky with blackberried fruit flavour, it’s infused with saltbush, it’s sheeted with cedary oak and for all its luxury polish it roars Get Out Of My Way, I’m On The Way To The Future. This is a ship with long anchors of tannin. Go on a fitness kick, eat healthy, do your best to be around in 20 years. This is a shiraz for the ages." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
