About the wine

Single Vineyard top shelf Shiraz!
  • Grown on the infamous Major Plains vineyard this wine sets the bar high! The vineyard is dry grown (No irrigation) and produces a very small crop of intensly coloured and flavoured fruits.
  • An impressive inky depth fills your glass with a purple rim. A great intensity of flavour, including red fruits and black pepper: along with chocolate and coconut from time spent in new barrels. You will be blown away by this masterpeice!
  • A rich and powerful palate highlights the complex structure of the wine. There are slight tannins but overall an impression of velvet and richness which make the wine lovely to drink. The wine has great length of flavour.

Best before
Drink now till 2028.

Serving advice
Open / Decant 30 min before serving.

Food match
Any red meat will go perfectly with this shiraz or a hard cheese instead of dessert.
