These ancestor vines are some of the oldest shiraz vines in the world, dating back to 1847. They pump fruit of extraordinary concentration, balance and power into wines like this. In fact, the fruit is of such intensity, that the wine was left in new French oak for 2 years. And you certainly wouldn't say it was excessively oaky. Brilliant crimson red colour is the first indication of its vibrancy and life. Lots of dark spicy red fruit with a distinctive lively cherry and chocolate character. Wow. Drink date: 2022-2047.
A juicy and flavorful red but stays in check with blackcurrant, sandalwood, and berry. It’s medium- to full-bodied with creamy texture and a long, flavorful finish. Spicy with lots of Asian spices and cloves underneath it all. Drink or hold.
Substantial and spectacular, the wine shows blackberry, dark chocolate, spicy oak, smoked game and warm spice characters on the nose. The concentrated palate delivers outstanding depth and richness, gorgeously framed by velvety texture and loads of polished tannins, making it hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2039.
