  • Wonderfully lifted aromatics, perfumed fresh black and red fruits complemented by spice and florals wafting from the glass. Blackcurrants, mulberry, cassis, and satsuma plum intertwine with potpourri, dried apricots, cloves and star anise. The palate shows the integration of dark Barossa fruits and the second use of RunRig French oak barriques balanced by trademark viscosity. A firm mouthfeel of fine-grained tannins balanced by dense yet creamy-like texture extolling the vineyard pedigree. Pair with forest game, mushrooms or truffles. Serve at 16C. Ready from 2024- 2040. Store in a cool cellar or wine fridge. 

The 2021 summer growing season was mild, with even and cool daily temperatures throughout. Enhanced by good rains provided during the winter and spring of 2020, our vineyards grew wonderful canopies and developed well-formed grape bunches. As a result of this long flavour development cycle in the vineyard, 2021’s signature is wines of high aromatic lift with densely coloured tints and exceptional balance.

Dark blood red/garnet Lifted floral and perfumed notes intermingle with aromas of red and black fruits such as plum, blackberry and mulberry. Charming mouthfeel and harmonious balance strike you immediately. The flavours linger with a soft yet firmer structure. Plush, voluptuous and alluring with pronounced length and cleansing acidity. Immediately enjoyable but better with cellaring.

Winery
This single vineyard, located next to our winery block on Roennfeldt Road, was planted in 1994 with cuttings taken from our RunRig grower vineyards – some of Australia's oldest genetic vine material. Shiraz is crushed straight on top of Viognier, which has been lightly pressed for RunRig, and the blend of fruit is then co-fermented. Maturation over 20 months is in barrels previously used for Runrig.
