About The Wine

The Eloquesta is Stuart Olsen's pride and joy.

This is the best fruit in Mudgee that he can get his hands on, fermented as whole bunches and left alone in French and Hungarian oak barrels for 32 months before bottling.

Stuart going for a dense yet elegant style of Shiraz with a little Petit Verdot to give some lift.

It's an opulent wine with lavish oak and deep pools of fruit.

Perfect for those who enjoy hearty red wines with some power.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This is the 9th Edition of the most illustrious red in my portfolio. The Shiraz Petit Verdot 2017, where the Shiraz Fruit has come from the Burgoyne Vineyard, coming into its own.

2017 was a fantastic year for this Vineyard and was Mick Burgoyne’s last, and his pride for this well drained Hillside Vineyard sporting sensational Shiraz came through infinitely.

There was a drought, but the water retention in the soil was fantastic. The Summer brought even ripening weather and great bunch weights. The berries were small and intense and the acid held wonderfully. Ripeness was clean and reliable.

The Petit Verdot also displayed great intensity, but elegance, the ripeness was good, but I have found this to be the most elegant Petit Verdot we have made thus far.

    Great Blend, Smart Producer - Olsen does it again!

    Jammy nose, good length with grippy tannins but not over the top. Excellent Friday night, Saturday night (or any night drinking wine). 15’ definitely ahead of 16’ but we’re talking small things. All in all, let it breathe a little, drink it and enjoy it!

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
