The Everest Shiraz 2018

RRP: $330.00



“Since winning the trophy for World’s Best Shiraz for the initial 2005 vintage, this wine goes from strength to strength with every vintage released” – Michelle Geber (Managing Director)


Dense ruby colour, with an intense, enticing nose of rich, red berry fruits and subtle French oak. The wine is incredibly dense and focused with a richness and purity that simply exudes top-class Barossa Shiraz.

Rich dark chocolate, mocha and cedar spice are all to the fore, but the central core is highly focused. Supple tannins from the gentle press merely complement the fruit, silky and rich yet impressively interwoven into the wine. The fruit/ acid balance ensures excellent length and provides a purity of structure for long-term ageing.


Only the very best grapes are selected from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages. Hand-picked, hand-sorted to 1 ton open fermenters with four times daily plunging and careful basket pressing. The highest quality parcels from this year’s fermented wines are set aside for 18 months maturation in the finest French oak. Once bottled the wine spends a further 24 months maturing in our cellars before release.

Review by: Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet shows pepper and spices, maraschino cherries, more oak than the 100 Year Old, with a very tight, firm, tensioned palate of concentration and density, firm tannins and impressive drive across the palate. Very ripe, dense and tightly packed, long and sinuous. Very good if not as powerful or huge as the 100 Year Old. Drink 2019-2036

Full-throttled and lavish, yet it’s graceful and sophisticated, showing blackberry, mixed berry compote, toasted spice and vanillin oak characters on the nose with nuances of tar, game and walnut. It’s dense and sumptuous on the palate with spectacular vigour and presence, wonderfully complemented by silky mouthfeel and perfectly pitched tannins. At its best: 2026 to 2046.
