About

The Lane Vineyards is one of the most iconic wineries in the Adelaide Hills.

They aim to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their vineyard.

The Block 14 Basket Press Shiraz is one of their most celebrated wines. The block sits atop a 450m rise high into the Hills. The traditional basket press technique helps to delicately extract all the flavour and character of the fruit with a gentle touch. It’s a very sexy Shiraz, truth be told.

The most recent reincarnation, the 2015 vintage, is a classic vintage of this wine. It offers supreme, premium-end drinking, a long term cellaring prospect and affordability, all in one bottle. If you love the cooler climate Shiraz movement in Aus, this is a benchmark wine you need to try.

What It Tastes Like

Refinement and finesse on show. Slender, elegant, spiced and mineral-driven to the core. The tannins are fine and tightly knit. Such a sleek wine. A very good vintage, here. Blackberry and plum, but a lofty hint of violets, anise and white pepper grounds in the mix too. A burst of bright red berries and a spicy finish. Good stuff.
