100% Shiraz grapes grown in the McLaren Vale wine region.
A well-planned blend of five separate premium Shiraz parcels, hand and machine harvested, from mid to late March. Fermented in a combination of small opens and statics, all batches were pressed and filled to barrel until blending after 10 months in oak.
Alcohol: 14.5% | pH: 3.49 | Acidity: 7g/L
“This is so delicious it’s hard to put the glass down. Swirling whole bunch juiciness, dark, pliant and fleshily fruit-focused, with lip smacking fresh, ripe flavours and an intriguing pot pouri of savouriness.” 95 points – DMWP
Vintage 2016: “Distinctly deeper colour than its Dona sibling. Fruit selection is part of the story, but so, too, is the making. This is intense, yet barely medium-bodied, dustry tannins interacting with dark very fruits and regional dark chocolate. Totally convinving winemaking.” 95 points – James Halliday
