    The Wine

    With lovely aromatics of blackberries, dried figs, mint chocolate and classic Clare Valley Earthiness. Our Shiraz is bright, punchy, complex with a supple pallet. Extraordinarily fine, structured tannins make this wine perfect to drink now but will cellar perfectly for up to 10 years.
