Bright deep maroon. A complex perfume of black cherry and boysenberry, underpinned with an endearing pastrami note. Beautiful notes of rose petal potpourri and Chinese black tea open to hints of English cheddar and teak wax. A luscious entrance with bright, tangy raspberry, black cherries and notes of liquorice and vanilla. The stems bring a lovely mineral sensation with a velvety tannin polish, leaving the finish fresh and dry. French Oak Barrique , 7% new, 93% 1-6 year old 11 months Although our commitment to Shiraz is historic - with the oldest Shiraz vines in Margaret River - the Vasse Felix Shiraz style is modern, cool climate elegance. Wild fermented in small batches, the wine's complexity is deep and true to its unique environment. Only the highest grade vineyard sections make this fine, small volume Shiraz.Awards:

This has a spicy and gently flinty nose with red-plum and berry aromas, leading to an attractively succulent palate that delivers bright red-fruit flavors, within bright, juicy tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Cabernet sauvignon might be the regional red darling, but sometimes shiraz stands proudly. Still in a restrained style with excellent fruit at its heart, a dusting of woodsy spices, black pepper with an iodine/ferrous note. Sandpaper tannins and poppy acidity go hand-in-hand.
