    Winemaker's Notes:

    Defined by altitude, Orange is one of Australia's highest and coolest wine regions starting at 600 meters above sea level. The name Climbing is an active reference to the high altitude of Climbing's vineyard and their continual quest for greater achievement. The vines are low yield, providing intense flavors and even berry ripening.

    Winemaker Philip Shaw describes this wine as "having good intense color, rich vibrant fruit and a touch of oak with intense plum fruit dominating. What I like about this wine is that under the plum, some white pepper flavors are emerging, very typical of the Orange region. The Climbing 2005 Shiraz will evolve well with up to 10 years cellaring."

    Critical Acclaim:

    An attractive medium-bodied wine with cherry and blackberry fruit, fine tannins and controlled oak.
