Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Lovely intensity of rich Shiraz fruit flavours but with an elegant structure and tannin level that gives this wine a great drinkable quality. Bright fruits – black berry, black currants, plums, violets & delicate spice." - Neil Jericho, owner/winemaker

From The Producer

Winemakers Notes
A medium bodied and elegant Shiraz, balanced and structured for drinking upon release, but with potential to cellar for several years to come.Gentle pressing and handling of the fruit, coupled with light handed oak treatment. Maturation in older French oak barrels ensures the wine is not over oaked and in balance with the structure and fruit characters of the wine.

Vineyards
Located in mid region of McLaren Vale and grown on the same soil composition of Blewitt Springs, sand with Iron Stone and underlying clay. Low yielding vineyards produces this wine of excellent Shiraz fruit and great intensity of fruit flavours and elegant structure.
