Produced from a blend of 97.8% Shiraz, 1% Viognier, 0.7% Mataro and 0.5% Marsanne with fruit sourced from amongst the oldest vines on the estate (planted in 1969). Maturation took place in 100% French oak barriques, 50% new, 50% 2 years old for a period of 21 months.

Perfumed, elegant and supple, yet powerful.

Opaque dark red black colour with a dark crimson red hue. Perfumed floral top notes are intermixed with plums and ripe dark cherries with a smoky overlay followed by some meaty characters, subtle fennel, clove and spicy cedar. Elegant and supple with an understated richness and excellent power the palate possesses flavours of dark plum, fennel and liquorice laced with smoky dried meats, clove and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Superb length with a long aftertaste of plum, fennel, liquorice, dried meats, clove and spicy cedar. A classic example of power without weight.
Cellar 5-8 years.

Other Reviews….
Shiraz, with a small percentage of mataro, was co-fermented with viognier and marsanne. While the colour is not particularly deep, the fragrance of the wine is exceptional, the intensity of the juicy spray of red fruits on the vibrant palate even more so. This is an iron fist in a velvet glove, the flavours lingering long after the wine has been swallowed. The inheritance of the late Bailey Carrodus is being carefully guarded. Drink by 2032.
