This is a great Shiraz, our full tasting note coming soon...

Winemaker "This wine was one of 3 barrels selected from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; I know this vineyard almost as well as my own. In the stellar 2018 vintage I separated the three aspects of the vineyard; Easterly, Northerly and Westerly to explore the ‘Terroir’. Each block was picked, fermented and vinified separately. The Western Slope was planted in 1970 on orange volcanic clay soils, over weathered limestone in Pokolbin. The fruit was cold soaked, fermented in open concrete fermenters with wild yeast, hand plunged, basket pressed and aged in French oak for 14 months. Unfined, unfiltered and gravity fed to bottle."

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

The Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.
