About the Wine
The Lane Vineyard aims to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their Adelaide Hills 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 suave, sexy Shiraz, truth be told. The most recent reincarnation, the 2015 vintage, is a classic vintage of this wine.
It offers supremely classy 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.
