Sourced from one of the highest vineyards on top of Menglers Hill, this quintessential Eden Valley Shiraz has a soft bouquet of red fruits and fresh-cut flowers with a moderately powerful fruit profile that finishes with an amazing minerality. Acidity is the true key to this wine. The elevation provides acidity retention and slight relief from weather extremes.
Skeletal gravelly soils provide a fine-boned mouth feel. Wildlife and gumtrees surround this vineyard, a natural inspiration for the colour of this label.
"Deep purple. Dusty white-pepper and herbal notes, with blackberry and raspberry fruit, and subtle clove oak. Black pepper, chocolate, spice and raspberry palate fruit, with brisk acidity and fine, firm tannins. Drink 2020 - 2026.
