Opaque and brooding when poured, with classic aromas of white pepper, graphite, dried herbs and plums – fragrant and refined.

It’s medium weight, but lacks nothing as it is amazingly balanced and integrated for a wine of its age.  Oak is present, although it’s happy to play a supporting role.  The core of this wine is built around intense fruit from low-yielding vines from a vintage of great quality.  It will outlive most Australian Shiraz from traditional warmer regions, and is far more food friendly.
