    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ar-che-type = An ideal example of a type, the quintessence. Deeply concentrated, this Reserve Shiraz owes its richness and character to the old vines on the property. It comes from extremely low yielding vines that average over 50 years in age and produce only a few clusters of grapes each. The result is unbelievable intensity.

    Deeply concentrated and rich, our REserve Shiraz reveals great fruit intensity. The old vines produce the blackberry, boysenberry, and plum aromas and flavors characteristic of classic Shiraz from the Barossa. The toasty oak is not shy, but is well-integrated, offering notes of mocha and coffee. On the palate, the wine is full and round with a lingering finish. This wine may be enjoyed now with apropriate foods, yet will become even more alluring with time.

    "Its fragrance blends ripe blueberry with violets and spice; the texture holds plenty of fruit to balance the alcohol. The strength of the structure should allow this to gain complexity with age." -Wine & Spirits
