Lifted aromas of dried flowers mingle with blackberries, mulberries and sweet spicy notes of cinnamon and roasted coconut. The medium bodied palate displays fresh, vibrant blackberry and mulberry fruits with complex earthy, graphite notes and hints of spice. The fine layered tannins integrate seamlessly with nuances of cedar and vanilla derived from the restrained use of French and a hint of American oak.

VINTAGE

Vineyard Notes
The vines enjoyed a near-perfect growing season, with a warm, dry spring and relatively light winds prevailing along the Margaret River Coast. The summer conditions were nice and warm without excessive heat until a curve ball arrived between 18 and 20 January, a rare weather event for this time of the year resulting in 80mm of rainfall across the region. This was a timely watering from Mother Nature for the reds and was followed by some cooler conditions in late January and early February. The fruit for our Estate Shiraz was harvested in perfect autumnal conditions. 2016 was an outstanding red wine vintage for the Margaret River region producing wines with excellent flavour concentration, density and fine structural tannins.
