Shiraz sourced from two vineyards. One vineyard is approximately 1km from Maslin Beach and 100 feet above sea level. It has a very cooling effect but small diurnal temperatures. It is grown on calcite and sand over limestone this formation produces vibrant fruit characters and firm tannin structure. The second vineyard is 70 year old Shiraz grown in sand over clay in the Blewitt Springs sub region. It produces intensely flavoured mouth filling flavours. Combine the two and it produces intense streamlined shiraz. the flavours are red berries, plums, spice, pepper that is supported by sweet savoury American and French Oak. A serious wine in its youth, but has the ability to age gracefully.
