Reserve Shiraz

Reserve Shiraz In exceptional years, after several considered barrel tastings, a decision is made to blend some of the wine to appear under our Reserve label. We look for barrels which exhibit outstanding fruit flavor, fine tannins and good balance. A very limited number of cases are produced under our Reserve label. These wines are made for cellaring and sharing on special occasions.

Old Vine Reserve Shiraz 2015

Rich, dark, dense fruit is apparent in this beautifully structured wine. The alcohol carries the tannins well and will support long term cellaring.

OLD VINE RESERVE SHIRAZ 2014

For the first vintage since 2008 we have been able to select a small parcel of our fruit to create this lovely Reserve wine. Hand picked from selected vines in our ‘old block’ this wine was handled separately through out the maturation process. This wine began its ferment in a small open fermenter before being free run into French oak barrels to complete its fermentation. It was bottled after 15 months in its barrels. While it is a delicious wine at this point it will certainly reward patient cellaring  for the wine collector.

Reserve Shiraz 2008

This Reserve Shiraz was created after considered tasting from an equal blend of old vine and young vine fruit barrel fermented and matured in a 40% – 60% blend of new and aged French oak. The intense flavours of blackberry, cassis and cedar are balanced by the ripe tannins which carry the wine through to a very long and satisfying finish.This wine will age well in your cellar for at least the next decade.

Reserve Shiraz 2007

Limited cases remaining

Made from a careful selection of barrels this powerful and complex wine displays rich, sweet blackberry and complex aromas of roasted coffee bean, char and spice that leap from the glass. On the long, mouth filling palate, concentrated dark fruit and pepper sit well with layers of spice and a firm tannin finish which will give long life in the cellar.
Wine Companion 2010
Here the savoury tannins are present from start to finish, but the greater density of the blackberry, spice and licorice fruit is sufficient to carry those tannins.
