An outstanding Old Block, but somewhat a departure from the more robust traditional blends of this wine. This has been in part due to the Eden Valley component, which has created a palate profile which may be likened to the very best Henschke reds. The average age of the vines used in this Shiraz are between 60 & 100 years old with 78% of the fruit coming from vineyards located in the Barossa and 22% sourced from Eden Valley vineyards. The Barossa Valley component gives the wine its voluptuous character, whilst fruit from the Eden Valley vineyard contributes texture and structure. The wine was matured for 20 months in a combination new to three year old French oak.
Vintage Conditions: The good winter rains of 2004, followed by a warm spring and mild summer set up a great ripening season for the 2005 vintage. The 2004-2005 season was kind with no extremes of heat, cold or wet which ensured great uniformity in vine balance and resultant flavour development. Healthy vines and ideal ripening conditions produced intense colour, with great structure, richness and balance.
A classy, sophisticated Shiraz.Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Superbly perfumed top notes of violets, dark cherries, blackberry, liquorice allsorts and spice. There is a touch of new and old leather on the palate overlaid with fine cedar oak. Flavours of dark cherries and blackberry over spice and blackpepper are supported by a very spicy back palate. Perfect balance with fine tannin structure.
Cellar 5-8 years.
