Crafted from old vine fruit grown along the golden hillside in Leasingham, it continues to display the opulence, regional character, and varietal power the valley is so renowned for.
Low yielding Shiraz parcels were chosen across their Golden Hillside vineyards, vinfied separately using time-honoured traditional techniques, then aged for 18 months in a selection of new and one-year-old French oak hogsheads. Bottling occurred without any fining or filtration.
Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues. Richly hedonistic, the nose jumps out of the glass, vigorously capturing the alluring aromas of dark chocolate, coal tar, exotic spices and complimentary French oak char. A wine of tremendous concentration, complexity and understated elegance, the palate brims with riper plums fruits, dark chocolate and tar nicely paired with classy French oak and polished tannins that carry over in the mouth well after the wine has been consumed. A wine made for the ages.
