2018 Old Vine Shiraz

(Only 100 Dozen Produced)

Another addition of our classic Old Vine Shiraz, this 2018 comes from the same vineyard as the 2013 and 2016 release. The only history we know of this vineyard is from a grower down the road and he remembers the vineyard when he started school. With that we believe it must be established around 1943 or even earlier. The soil is sand over clay - this helps provide deep root growth, which sustains the maturity of the fruit during growing season. The vines collect the minerality of the soils and intrench the micro-climate.

The barrels that make the Old Vine Shiraz are specifically selected and every year, only the best fruit goes into a variety of different barrels. Selected this vintage was 100% new 500litre French oak, aged for 24 months.
The climate this vintage was warm and constant, producing elegant and rich fruit for this vintage.

Aromas of blackberry, mulberry, sweet red lollies, clove, and pepper spice ending on a subtle French oak note. The palate has a soft and subtle lingering tannin.

A beautifully crafted Shiraz, that will blossom with bottle age.
