Consistently one of the highest rated, best selling Aussie Shiraz, this blockbuster is made from 70+ year old vines! Powerful, ripe, spicy, and mouthfillingly sumptuous.
Using traditional open top fermenters each parcel of fruit from the old blocks is fermented seperately and then matured in American oak for two and a half years. Only the very best parcels are then selected for the final blend, and following assemblage the wine is then matured for a further twelve months in bottle prior to release. This yields a full-flavoured, mouthfilling chocolatey Shiraz, with a soft and velvety finish: A representative of the True and Classic Barossa style.
"From vines over 70 years old, this delightful wine combines sheer size with the finesse of a great red. Powerful flavors of anise, blackberry jam, sweet cassis and dark chocolate cascade over the palate, stunning with richness and intensity. Yet the wine maintains a lilting grace and lightness, not to mention the near-perfect balance for aging."
