About This Wine:

In 2010, cuttings from the Alices, Apricot, Seven Acre, and Roennfeldt Road vineyards were used to establish the vineyard. Red clay and thick loam make up the soils. Since the clay is heavier than other Shiraz blocks, it takes longer for the fruit to mature, allowing us to leave it on the vine longer. This imparts a pleasing solidity to the wine that pairs well with the loam's rich fruit flavour of blackcurrants and cherries and its smooth tannins.
Red cherry and darker fruits are covered in a herbal tint in the nose's cold, spicy sensation. The palate is well-defined, reasonably cool, and elegant. With some more restrained blue fruit and blackcurrant, it has a medium body and is straight across the tongue. The tannins are smooth yet powerful and have a spicy, currant-like flavour.

Previously, this wine was aged in only 10% new American oak and 90% seasoned French wood, which we believe has sharpened the focus.
