    Winemaker's Notes:

    Attunga 1865 Shiraz is a single vineyard, Clare Valley Shiraz made from some of Australia's oldest living vines. These 900 individual Shiraz vines, planted in Clare's ancient Terra Rossa soils, were established in 1865 before the phylloxera scourge which decimated the vines of Europe and the USA.

    Released only in years of exceptional quality, this wine offers amazing intensity and complexity, achievable only from vines of this age. Spicy plums, mocha and dark blueberries are evident on the nose, followed by a rich, textural palate delivering sweet, mouthfilling berry fruits, clove spices and silky tannins. Wonderful finesse and persistence of flavor.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Shiraz "Attunga 1865" is sourced from ungrafted vines planted in the Clare Valley in 1865. It spent 25 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Opaque purple/black, it reveals an ethereal bouquet of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, espresso, mocha, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a powerful, intense, yet elegant wine with a very long, seamless finish. This beautifully balanced effort will excite tasters over the next 25 years.
