This wine is matured in French oak barrels for 17-23 months, depending on the vintage. We use a high percentage of new oak (40-80%) to produce this full bodied wine style. Typically the bouquet is of dark fruits and savoury oak and the palate is intense, with flavours of fresh, dark cherries and blackberries. The wine style is supported by silky tannins and has a long, soft, savoury finish.
The Limited Release is an elegant and perfectly balanced wine style which makes it exceptional drinking whilst young, with the structure to develop well into the future. We suggest serving this wine with rare meats including game, beef and lamb, slow cooked and marinated meats.
Bottled under screw cap and cork, when the vintage is amenable to both closures. The 2012 is bottled under screw cap only. The 2007 is bottled under cork only.
2013 was a warm season that followed a cool, wet spring. Vine growth was moderately vigorous throughout the vineyard. Summer was generally warm to hot and relatively dry throughout the ripening season. This produced small, concentrated berries with rich plum fruit flavours. These growing conditions have produced an intense wine with spicy, rich fruit character and high natural acidity.
Colour: Dense ruby, with a garnet hue.
Nose: Blackberries and dark cherries, supported by soft cedar and cloves.
Palate: Intense, ripe blackberries and spice dominate the palate. The front palate provides a spicy introduction to a long and persistent after palate, supported by dark cherries, dark plums and silky tannins. Superbly integrated French oak provides the length and persistence that is the hallmark of this wine style. This is a fine and elegant, medium to full bodied wine.

This shiraz has an aroma displaying cassis, bramble and hints of pepper. It abounds with black berry and currant flavours, an even palate where the intense tannins and fruit are balanced nicely with acidity, leaving a long smooth finish.
