About the wine

Packed with colour and flavour
  • The fruit for this wine was grown on the Forest Hut vineyard in the Pyrenees wine region of Victoria. An unirrigated vineyard growing small tiny berries packed with colour and flavour.

  • The Shiraz has an inky depth of colour and shows a lovely magenta red at the rim. The aroma is of dark cherries, chocolate and also a blackcurrant note. On the palate the wine is rich and has a plush 'slipperiness' to it. A great concentration of flavour, and loads of power and weight, but combined with a roundness which makes it a really enjoyable drink.

  • I'm always hesitant to publicly mention benchmark wines from this vineyard, but can I say that this is up there with some of the best Australian Shiraz, that would comfortably sit with wines over $60 per bottle.

Best before
This Shiraz has great ageing potential - perhaps as much as a decade. But it also has a richness and plushness which makes it a delicious drink now.

Serving advice
As a young wine, no need to decant. But as it matures it might throw and crust and be worth decanting. Decanting will also smash some air into it, which when it is a mature wine will help it open up.

Food match
Steak and Shiraz is a match made in heaven.
