An aged cool-climate delight

    • Leighton strictly limits the yield of his family vineyard each vintage to maximise every opportunity of healthy fruit growth, with the ultimate goal of the most downright delicious Shiraz you've ever licked your lips for. As he executes his masterful winemaking plans, Mother Nature ticks away in the stunning high hills of the cool climate Victorian Pyrenees.
    • Get ready for a bouquet of black pepper, bramble and charred French oak. As this liquid joy hits your palate, you'll revel in bold layers of black cherry, liquorice and cacao and balanced oak, closing with a classic tannin structure. Angels, this seriously tempting creative grape juice was crafted exclusively for you!
    • 100% Pyrenees Shiraz under $16, made for you in the vineyard that Leighton helped plant back in 1999. Direct from a passionate industry pro into the hands of passionate wine fans, stories of winemaker liberation don't get much more authentic than this!

Ageing advice
Ready to impress now, or let it evolve in the cellar until 2022.

Serving advice
Will benefit decanting or simply a vigorous pour.

Local food match
Perfect with the Sunday papers and good cheese, in anticipation of a great meal. Also great with your favourite spread of antipasto, and the best of company.
