Winemaker's Notes

The exceptional 2017 vintage conditions were ideal for our mature Shiraz vineyards. For this rare Limited Edition wine, we selected the best rows of fruit from our contoured “War Horse” and “Ironstone” 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. Lifted blueberry, spicy plum and black cherry dominate the bouquet, enhanced by hints of vanilla bean, pepper and mocha. The intense palate delivers briary blackberry, loganberry, dark chocolate and liquorice, complemented by spice, pepper and toasty vanilla and cedar oak. Approachable now with aerating or cellar up to 20 years under the right conditions
