The fore fathers of the region had either a grand vision, or simple luck to plant Shiraz in the Barossa. It’s been and continues to be the very essence of our region today and will remain an iconic variety representing some of the oldest vineyards and highest pedigree wines that adorn many of the fine cellars and wine lists of the world. The very Soul of the region.

Vineyards and Vine Age  
Fruit was taken from numerous vineyards with vine age ranging from 20 yrs – 70+ years.  Sub Regions include Ebenezer, Kalimna, Eden Valley, Stonewall, Vine Vale and Lights Pass.

Fermentation
All individual parecls of fruit were open fermented very traditionally, with plunging and pumping over twice daily, prior to basket pressing.

Maturation
The wine was matured in a combination of some newer and more older French and American oak hogsheads and puncheons. The oak regime is designed to respect the fruit but to add layers of subtle background oak.

Tasting Note
Dark purple, black hues with dark berry fruit carrying onto the nose with subtle spicy oak. The palate has soft up front notes of plums and blackcurrant with integrated oak structure .  The finish is soft and long. Quintessential Barossan Shiraz that displays elegance, finesse, firm structure and wonderful depth of flavour.
