Silver Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards

A full-bodied wine with a lightness of touch, this shows the typical plum and mulberry fruit of Shiraz lifted by the delicate apricot and floral notes of Viognier. The palate is rich and spicy but still retains a seam of elegance and a long, poised finish.

This wine offers a rich and lifted perfume of violets and blue fruits jump out of the glass with hints of peach, pepper and herbal notes adding to the complexity. The ripe and juicy berries flow onto the medium-bodied palate with soft and velvety tannins adding a lovely structure and texture to the wine.Fortunately, a timely rain and mild conditions delayed the start allowing flavour and colour to catch up with sugar. Considering the dry winter, yields generally were a little above average due to a slightly warmer spring, great flowering and fruit set conditions. This combined with mild, late summer weather meant the grower and winemaker were happy with another solid vintage tucked away. By early March, 70% of the harvest was in and with another nice drink from the heavens, vintage slowed right down building flavour in the late ripening varieties like Grenache and Mataro, as well as great results from our Eden Valley reds and whites. We finished harvest with our Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon on the 15th of April. This vintage really highlights how tenacious and robust grape vines are, producing good yields and great quality in a very dry season (but they can’t sustain dry conditions forever). Fortunately, a more normal winter this year with much needed rain is refilling the soil and water resources. 

Ripe and ready. Tar, licorice, squished blackberries and rusty spices. It hits, carries well through the palate and then finishes with a warm, sweet, fruit-filled flourish.

A smooth, slippery and fragrant red plum- and raspberry-fruited style with easygoing appeal and plenty of depth in terms of flavour.
