This wine displays vibrant red berry fruit flavours with a touch of spice and a fine silky, tannin structure. The well integrated French oak leaves the palate full yet soft with great complexity and length. The wine has an intense bouquet of plum and spice. Careful cellaring will see you rewarded up to 2030. Serve with red meat, pasta and mature cheese.

From west facing vines on a small plot of the Brokenback Vineyard planted in the early ‘70s. Dark crimson-purple, beautifully deep and intensely bright; it has a layered and spicy bouquet with hints of dried herbs setting it apart from the other ’14 Shirazs. It is firmer and the tannins more present, but the finish no less intense and long. 95 Points 2046
