This wine is made using six different Shiraz clones which add complexing layers to the finished wine. These clones were first identified in 1964 by Harry Tulluch of the South Australian Department of Agriculture and include SA1654 (The most widely planted Shiraz clone in Australia) which produces wines of intense black purple colour with a distinct black pepper character; SA2626, a firmer tannin structure with flavours of stewed fruit and sour cherries. SA1127 has spectacular dense purple black colour and the aroma is of violets and cherry palate flavours. SA712 is dominated by chocolate and plum flavour whilst BVRC30 offers an earthy, farmyard character to Shiraz.
A rarity in todays market place in terms of its bottle age and price/quality ratio.
Totally opaque inky black dark red colour with deep dark red black tinged hue. The nose exhibits lifted scents of ripe blackberries and black plums followed by some chocolate bullets and spicy cedar. Brimming with rich opulently textured fruit the palate is flooded with flavours of ripe blackberries, black plums and liquorice followed by some aniseed, vanillin oak and spice. Plush mouthfeel with velvet smooth tannins. Outstanding concentration and depth with very long liquorice, aniseed, blackberries, vanillin oak and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
