TASTING NOTES

The 2022 Single Barrel Shiraz, created by 11-year-old vintner Sebastian from the cool-climate Dixons Creek vineyard in the Yarra Valley, exudes enticing aromas of redcurrants, dark cherries, and cedar. On the palate, it is rich yet refined, with soft tannin, a medium-bodied mouthfeel, and a savoury, lingering finish. This wine beautifully represents the elegance of European Syrah.
