This Shiraz was hand selected at vintage from our family properties at Glen Devlin and Scotts Creek on the River Murray. The parcels were kept to one side, crushed and fermented separately in order to retain the quality seen on the vine. The 2018 vintage was later than usual in the Riverland and saw the reds harvested later than the whites in what became a relatively short vintage. Producing outstanding quality for reds, the particularly dry growing season did see some yields lower than normal.
The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery. Kept separate these parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel with the influence of French oak for complexity.

Rich creamy plum fruits on the nose, with spicy cinnamon and nutmeg, cradled by soft mocha notes.
This is our classic South Australian Shiraz: deeply coloured, full-bodied and richly flavoured with berry fruit and subtle oak. White and black pepper add interest to the ripe plums and a luscious long finish. Smooth and rich it can be enjoy on its own or with red meats, stir fry or cheese.
