Tasting Notes

Colour Deep Red
Nose The 2015 has similar brooding, briary aromatics to the previous vintage: subtle and complex, medium-bodied with wild blackberry and bramble
Palate Much more savoury both in its fruit and the general feel of the wine: there’s a dry gentle grip on the finish which reflects the overall impact of the wine. Good weight and restrained power. It is neatly balanced, ripe, with fine, supple tannins, lingering.
Food Pairing soft cheeses
Cellaring 15+ Years
Notes Fascinated by the art of blending, Jeff has trialled shiraz-based wines for years. This release is shiraz with just a small amount of nero d’avola which adds a touch of perfume and freshness, matured in French oak (35% new barriques) 18 months.

Predominantly made from Clare Valley shiraz with a dash of nero d’avola. Supple and joyous with a plush, dark-fruited palate. Fragrant dark cherries and mulberries, with a little blackberry on the finish. Excellent mid-palate fleshiness and intensity. A beautifully balanced, elegant red wine with gentle savouriness and pleasing restraint.
