Deep garnet red with crimson hues.
Red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate fruits with a hint of fennel seed and ginger. Alluring spicey notes of cardamon and white pepper overlayed with roasted nuts and white chocolate.
Bright red fruit flavours and savoury spices. Mocha and toasty oak flavours evolve with the fruit flavours adding to the many layers within this wine. Soft acidity and fine-grained tannin provide length to the finish. This medium bodied, elegant, cool climate style Shiraz drinks well in its youth, but can be cellared for up to 10 years with confidence.
The 2021 vintage could be best described as challenging. A reflection of the wetter than average summer impacting picking decisions. Our Wilyabrup vineyard however fared well and produced fresh, bright, flavoursome fruit to make wines from. The low yielding Shiraz vines were machine harvested in the cool of the night and transported to the winery for processing. The resulting wines are fresh, balanced and display wonderful varietal fruit characteristics.
