Ben Jeanneret calls this curiously named wine 'Rank & File'. It's what Shiraz represents to him - the heart and soul of the Australian wine industry. Sourced from some of the best low yielding, old vine vineyards in Clare, the fruit for this wine was matured in a mixture of French and American oak for a period of 17-23 months. Year in year out this is one of our best selling Shiraz, the powerful rich black fruits and opulent feel make it irresistible drinking.

A super rich Clare Shiraz layered with a dense wall of lavish fruit that’s underscored by a muscular structure.

Impenetrable inky black heart with a very deep black dark red hue. Wafting from the glass are liquorice, black cherry liqueur like aromas and blackberry which meld into toasty vanillin cedar and peppered earth notes. Super rich, densely textured and exuberant, the full bodied palate is engulfed with lavish liquorice and black cherry liqueur flavours which are underscored by a ripe muscular tannin structure. Toasty vanillin cedar, scorched earth and blackpepper elements line the back half. Concludes long and opulent yet quite robust.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
