Ohhh this is good. And as it should be. The fruit for this shiraz comes from one of the finest vineyards in Heathcote, one that was planted by a man considered to be the best viticulturist in the region. Two separate shiraz clones are harvested, fermented and aged separately in a mix of old and new large format French oak for a little over a year. From there, blending trials are conducted to find the best balance and create the most compelling wine. It’s smooth and rich, but with structure as well. Plum, chocolate, chestnut, clove and cedar abound. There’s some minerality and fine tannin as well to balance out the fruit. And those five years of age certainly help, but no worries about giving it plenty more time in the cellar.
