The exceptional 2016 vintage conditions were ideal for our mature Cabernet and Shiraz vineyards. For this rare Limited Edition wine, we selected the best rows of fruit from our contoured “Basket Weave” Cabernet and War Horse” and “Ironstone” Shiraz blocks, which were planted in the 1950’s. These old, low yielding vines are planted in red sandy loam over two lateral layers of ironstone, where the root system has to has to search for fissures to access moisture.
A fine balance of the sweeter fine-tuned cassis of Cabernet, with the plummy, blueberry and black cherry savoury notes of juicy Shiraz. Released with age to allow for a seamless introduction of toasty American oak, giving spice and pepper, all now living in harmony.
Approachable now with aerating or cellar for well over a decade under the right conditions.
