Vines nourished by the famous Cambrian soils of Heathcote in Victoria gave up 1.5 ton of fruit per acre in 2003. A gentle approach respects the fruit; whole berries, indigenous yeasts, open oak fermenters and minimal handling. Aged in new French Oak barrels, and then for a further seventeen years in our cellars. This wine has a complex nose, with blood plum, leather, aniseed, clove and tar on the nose, the tannins have softened out over this time creating a wine of balance and poise while retaining a great acid structure. This is premium Shiraz at its peak!
