97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
This limited release wine is blended from their finest parcels of 2015 Shiraz. Hand selected grapes were crushed in small open fermenters and pumped over twice daily (for 7 days) to maximise flavour and tannin extraction. The wine was then pressed off its skins and matured in 50% new and one year old French oak barriques for 16 months.
This multi-award winning Shiraz is deep red in colour with vibrant aromas of lifted blackberry fruit, pepper, red liquorice and a touch of vanilla. The palate shows ripe, fleshy fruit with silky tannins driving a long finish.
“Matured in French oak. Good colour; the Adelaide Hills wastes no time in imprinting its signature on what is an exceptionally good wine. The symphony of fruit, tannins and oak flavours plays without interruption as you navigate the complex palate, luscious red and black cherry fruits dipped momentarily in dark chocolate. This is high quality fruit beautifully handled in the winery.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
