STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Shiraz fruit in this blend comes from the Mary Gordon Vineyard which is 15 years old, and the Hillside vineyard which is 21 years old. The latter is one of the first Shiraz ripening vineyards in the district located in the Sellicks Hill subregion at an elevated site with loam over limestone soils. This vineyard tends to produce bigger, bolder tannins due to the low yielding vines.
Deep purple red in colour, the wine is a heady mix of dark berry fruit, with earthy nuances and lifted florals from the addition of Viognier. Excellent structure, it has great depth and richness of plums and blackberries with supportive, balanced oak, bold tannins and a lingering finish.
