Additional information


Yarra Valley




Excellent cool climate Shiraz in a Syrah style with dusty tannins and a savoury finish. Beautiful floral violet aromas, cassius, red plum. Very fresh on the palate, balanced and delicious blend of dark cherries, blackberry fruit with toasty oak and a touch of spice.


100% hand picked Shiraz. Matured on lees in seasoned French oak hogsheads for 10 months. Bottled in November 2018 and released in March 2019. Reflective of the season, the wet December followed by warm days and cool nights have resulted in production of a more finessed wine reminiscent of a syrah.

Yarra Valley

Located in the picturesque Yarra Valley region. Situated at 150m above sea level, the Shiraz vines were planted in the early 1990’s. 100% cane pruned to insure best quality fruit is grown and hand-harvested.
