The 2014 vintage was unique! It all started with the wet and cold November 2013 resulting in reduced fruit set and much smaller bunches than usual. Improved weather followed through to harvest in late March 2014 with generally ideal ripening conditions. So, lovely fruit but not much of it – with crops a dramatic 75% down! 

As we are located in a cool climate region, our shiraz grapes ripen very slowly and late into autumn. This leads to a shiraz style that has enticing and complex spice aromas, layers of toasty mocha and a palate that is elegant yet intense. Whilst a contrast to the bigger shiraz wines often associated with Australia, this is a wine that complements a range of food styles without dominating flavours 
     

After some 18 months maturation in barrel and a further 2 years in bottle, this shiraz has emerged from its slumbers and is a striking example of how elegance and intensity in cool climate shiraz can be so pleasing. Spice mingles with toasty oak with hints of mocha and tobacco leaf layered with dark olives, charcuterie and dark stone fruit. 

These elements fold onto the palate… where the balance, harmony and integration of smooth enveloping tannins leaves your palate yearning to explore the wine further. A wine for enjoyment now – or perhaps equally satisfying to share the journey of discovery as a slowly maturing rich and flavoursome wine for 12+ years
