Wild Duck Creek Reserve Sriraz 2018

Variety: Shiraz
Region: Heathcote
Vintage: 2018

Almost black with a dark purple hue. A selection of extraordinary fruit from our best shiraz vineyards – the ‘Original Vineyard’ and ‘Mia Mia Vineyard’ in the south, and the ‘Mt Pleasant Vineyard’ in the north. These parcels of fruit are hand selected, often only individual bunches taken from vines that have best withstood the harsh Heathcote summer. The wine is bright, rich and seductive. 5% whole bunch here, adding a vibrant lift from the glass. The nose is all black pastel, charcoal, spice and red fruit compote. The palate has a wonderful electricity about it, with beautiful acids and a smooth finish. It’s full of violets, blue and black fruits, all alongside concentrated plum and chocolate. The mouth feel has real grip here, and is unlike any other wine in the line-up. The finish is long and framed by abundant tannins. Matured in 90% new French oak and 10% new American oak barriques for 23 months. Cellar 12 years+. 16.2% alc. (200 Cases Only).

Top Ranked Wine

Ranked #3 of 38

Very deep, dark, glass-staining red/purple colour. The bouquet is very oaky and savoury, with coconut and toasty-barrel, mocha and espresso coffee notes. A massive wine, loaded with tannins - but they’re ripe, supple tannins - while the flavour is concentrated and strongly oak-infused. Brandied prunes in the aftertaste. The sheer weight and power of the wine means it almost handles the huge alcohol strength. This wine demands more time, and will reward the patient. It has massive potential. (23 months in new French oak hogsheads and barriques)
