Dark ruby red with bright crimson hues.
Ripe dark fruits of blackberry, black cherry and blueberries, with alluring spicey notes of star anise, cardamon and white pepper.
As per the nose, the dark berry fruits and savoury spices are abundant. There is the faintest hint of mocha and toasty oak evolving with the fruit flavours, all adding to the many layers within this wine. The bright fruit flavours are carried by natural acidity and fine-grained tannin providing length to the finish. This medium bodied, elegant, cool climate style of Shiraz will continually open up and evolve in the glass. Cellar for up to 10 years for added complexity and bottle age flavours.
2020 was a vintage like no other. Whilst a global pandemic changed the way people lived their lives, Margaret River experienced a near perfect vintage. The preceding Spring growing season was warmer than average resulting in earlier bud burst and grape development. Grape yields were lower than average which led to one of the earliest harvests on record. The near perfect growing season allowed the winemakers to harvest fruit at optimal flavour and sugar ripeness. The Shiraz wines are deeply coloured with intense fruit flavours as a result of the very low yields.
