Aroma: Intense perfume, mixed berry fruits, floral notes and spice.

Palate: Primary fruit leads onto savoury graphite and white pepper underpinned by stalkiness and concentrated meatiness.

Fruit was hand-picked and destemmed directly to the Yarra Yering half-tonne open-fermenters. As much whole berry as possible is retained to encourage perfume. Stalks were added back to one-third of the fermenters in order to contribute structure and aroma. The wine was aged for 15 months in French oak barriques, 40% new before blending and bottling.

Varietals: 95% Shiraz, 2.5% Viognier, 2% Mataro, 0.5% Marsanne

Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)

Vines: Original 1969 plantings of Shiraz and Marsanne with additional Shiraz, Mataro & Viognier drawn from vines planted from 1984 to 1995.

Cellaring: Drinking beautifully at present but this vineyard has a proven pedigree and track record thus it will continue to evolve for a further 20+ years under suitable cellaring conditions.

Analysis: 13.5 % ALC

Accolades: Langton’s Classified “Excellent”
