The fruit is sourced entirely from our Magarey Vineyard located at the northern end of the Terra Rossa strip. This area is known for being a preferable growing location for Shiraz. in Coonawarra. Season 2014 in Coonawarra will be described by most, as one of the longest on record starting mid February and finishing in the first week of May. Overall it was a perfect extended dry and mild ripening season allowing optimum flavour, colour and tannin development which will deliver a classic Coonawarra Vintage.
Structured yet powerful, layers of fruit are framed by restrained creamy oak. Sweet red berry and chocolate notes contribute to a smooth velvety texture. A firm, balanced tannin structure gives the wine an excellent persistence of flavour.
