In a nutshell: A South Australian Old Vine Shiraz with good aging potential.
The lowdown: The product of fruit from 50 year old Eden Valley vines on precious low yielding sites and meticulous winemaking. All the fruit is handpicked and fermented in small open topped vessels with maturation being in mainly new French Osk barrels. The aromas are of red berries and blackcurrants with dusty dried spice hints. While on the palate the fruit flavours are generous and concentrated.
When to drink: This is a superlative South Australian red which is built to last and will be great drinking right through the 2020s.
