About The Wine
The name Sang de Pigeon is drawn from winemaker Michael Hall's time as a jewellery valuer. Meaning "Blood of the Pidgeon", this title was given to only the reddest of rubies in the trade.
Here, Michael uses it to describe the fine fruit selected for this lovely Shiraz. This is predominantly sourced from the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa Valley with 15% of the fruit coming from the Flaxmans Valley and the Adelaide Hills.
It's made with Michael's signature deft touch resulting in a robust yet sleek red with 95 points from David Bicknell. All in all, it's a classy and great value version of Shiraz from this famous region.
