The 2013 Shiraz is a special wine delivered from the Adelaide Hills’ Longview vineyard – in a region with a strong reputation for producing great Shiraz.

The grapes were handpicked in March  – plump, ripe berries bursting with flavour. Whole berries and some whole bunches were put into a fermenter and left to sit. A slow, even fermentation – on skins for a month – was then pressed off to French oak, a portion treated to new oak. This wine has an instant appeal. It is balanced with juicy plum and blackberry and a layer of spice that lingers on the palate. The French oak sits nicely and is very well integrated in the wine.

Halliday: 95

“Whole berry, with some whole bunches, fermented and left on skins for prolonged post-fermentation maceration. Deep crimson purple; black cherry fruit is swathed in super fine, but persistent, tannins ex the long maceration – which has not been overdone. This has the style to flourish in bottle for decades.”
