Perhaps not surprisingly given our early experience with the variety in the 1970s, Shiraz has once again found a happy home in our vineyard. The 2013 vintage is a wine of depth, with lifted blue fruit, white pepper and intense aromatics. Elegant, and with a silky luxuriousness, the nose leads effortlessly onto the beautifully poised palate that delivers a wine of almost unexpected structure and focus. Savoury and sappy, yet generously fleshy, the mid-palate demands attention as it builds through the fine tannin core towards a long and expansive finish. A wine of structure and finesse for drinking now or over the next 5-10+ years.
