This limited release wine is made from low yield and handpicked fruit from our oldest vines planted in 1973. The fruit was crushed and destememd, hand plunged in open fermentation tanks, followed by traditional basket pressing.
This wine has a complex nose of dark fruits, blueberry, plums, herbs, spice and a hint of white pepper. It is full bodied with a deep concentration of colour, with a bright purple hue. The palate is elegant with plum and black fruits, rich and highly concentrated with a supple and silky tannins. It has been aged for 27 months in new French oak barriques.
The Reserve Old Vine Shiraz is an elegant and harmonious example of complex cool-climate Shiraz. An excellent pairing for a number of beautiful meals, including Osso Buco, Pepper Steak and Lamb.
This wine will continue to improve over the next 5 to 10 years.
