A single vineyard wine from our very best Shiraz vineyard, located behind the cellars. The block is planted to three clones and pruned to various methods to enhance the layers and complexity of the resultant wine. An agile viticultural strategy to thrive in drought or flood.

Held in the cellar for three years from bottling, the accent is on dense blackberry, liquorice and spice with bitter chocolate and savoury tannins running through the length of the palate. This wine will continue to age gracefully in a good cellar for at least another decade.
