All-rounders stand apart from the specialists. They are flexible and reliable showing great sportsmanship and skill in all positions. They play for the team and can doggedly save the day or fill any gap, but when singled out they may not dazzle but can shine as bright as any star.
Our wonderful WW2 Grenache vines are capable of an amazing range from opera to rock, from tango to tap with these gnarled ancients producing Rhone-ish character and complexity from perfumed confectionery to savoury earthiness. All singing! All dancing! All round delight!
100% Lenswood Pinot Noir.
Kept on a mix of French and American oak for 11 months before bottling.
Clear bright ruby colour. Sour cherry and raspberry nose lifted by wet leaves and mushroom. Fresh cranberry and red cherry palate with hints of licorice and lively yet smooth tannins.
Anderson Hill O Series 2018 Shiraz has taken out the ‘Best In Show’ at the world’s largest and most influential wine competition, the Decanter World Wine Awards!
The wine is dark in colour, with lots of episcopal purple; the aromas are bright, lifted and billowing, not just cherry-fresh but with some billowing cherry blossom in there too. In the mouth, the wine is deep, round, poised and lively: an explosion of vivid fruits with a peppery finish.” – Trophy & 97 Points Decanter DWWA 2020
Lifted red cherry, plum and fig are matched with florals and baking spices as well as hints of savoury, earthy notes. The palate features red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length.
