FRUIT

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 2016 vintage in the Riverland produced outstanding quality for reds

WINEMAKING

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.    

AROMA

Concentrated raspberry and mulberry fruits with hint of vanilla and pepper spice.

PALATE
This is our classic South Australian Shiraz: deeply coloured, full-bodied and richly flavoured with berry fruit and subtle oak.  Smooth and rich it can be enjoy on its own or with red meats, barbecues and pasta dishes.
