    Winemaker's Notes:

    Since its inaugural release in 1979 this piece of liquid history has become one of the worlds' most sought after wine collectables. This 2006 vintage is showing a heady mix of capsicum, mint and pepper aromas; a palate of spice, licorice and berry fruit characters, with hints of dusty oak and fine grained tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Exceptionally bright, clear crimson with no hint of colour change; this one of the best 1860s Vines ever made. It has effortless power that invests the palate with extreme length, the red and black cherry fruit responsible for all the aroma and flavour, oak merely a vehicle, the tannins superfine. The number of vines killed by frost in 2007 is a tragedy of monumental proportions.

    Australian Wine Companion

    Coming from a single vineyard planted in 1860, the 2006 1860 Vines Shiraz was aged in French oak hogheads, 30% new, for 26 months. Very deep garnet colored, it presents a complex, savory nose with notes of sandalwood, Ceylon tea and cigar boxes over cranberry tea, red currant preserves, kirsch, potpourri, anise and forest floor. Elegant and medium bodied in the mouth, it packs-in layers of flavors with crisp acid and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy. It makes a very good glass now though will reward cellaring, drinking to 2024+.

    The Wine Advocate

    Ripe and focused, this is distinctive for its black olive-accented blackberry and roasted meat flavors, which ride almost delicately on a medium-weight frame. Balanced to last.
