From the old Shiraz block running along the northern side of what used to be known as Ellen Street. Here vines with craggy, gnarled trunks provide small bunches of full flavoured grapes. After maturation in oak barrels, the Ellen Street Shiraz is bottles and cellared before release. Tremendous age-worthy wine, the old vintages of are still kept in a family cellar.
James Halliday “Dense red-purple; very ripe, almost essency, cherry and chocolate aromas come through strongly on the lusciously rich and ripe palate, with its abundant sweet cherry fruit and ripe tannins; oak is somewhere there in the mix. A redeeming feature is that the wine is (only) 14 degrees.”
