A small parcel of outstanding old-vine fruit is the inspiration behind Sevenhill Cellars’ flagship wine, the Brother John May Reserve Release Shiraz. The wine honours the stellar winemaking career of Sevenhill’s Jesuit Winemaker Emeritus, Brother John May, SJ, who, in 2012, completed 49 vintages in the Clare Valley. The fruit for the Reserve Release was hand picked from a single block, recognised for producing high-quality Shiraz from low-yielding vines that were planted by Brother May in his very early days at Sevenhill. The wine spent 22 months in new French oak, with a further two years’ bottle age before its release in individually numbered bottles.

‘A powerful and compelling Clare Valley Shiraz not to be missed.’



Impenetrable inky black colour with dark red black tinged hue. The nose delivers a powerful intoxicating sniff of liquorice, dark chocolate and ripe blackberries overlaid by a hint of mint followed by some vanillin oak and spice. The palate has tremendous richness, presence and concentration boasting mouthfilling flavours of liquorice, ripe blackberries and dark chocolate that completely saturate the palate. Nuances of toasty vanillin oak, mint and spice are also present. Dense and thick with a voluptuous mouthfeel the wine possesses velvet smooth tannins and a very long persistent aftertaste of liquorice, blackberry, choc mint, vanillin oak and spice. Very Limited Stocks.
Cellar 6-8 years.
