The dark, brooding regional characters of plum, red cherry and liquorice are all to the fore of this wine.
The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.
The most westerly zone of the Barossa, known as the Western Slopes, gives rise to some of the richest expressions of Shiraz from the Barossa.
Soil: Heavy brown earth, red clay and crackled ironstone
To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine.
Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.
