A flagship Shiraz born of treasured, old vines dating back to 1854, these are some of the oldest Shiraz plantings in the world. Matured in Yalumba coopered oak octaves; the inspiration behind the name of this fine, Barossa wine. A very deep purple, red in colour. This wine showcases Shiraz with its’ depth of Barossa Valley and the alluring, aromatic freshness of Eden Valley. Vibrant aromas of dark cherries, anise and red raspberry. A distinctive wine with richness and dark berry, fruit compote palate. Perfectly balanced, elegant and refined. A moderate winter led into a warm, dry spring giving a somewhat sedate start to the growing season. This weather continued into summer until the end of January when 25mm of rain fell. The rain was welcomed and gave the vines the drink they needed to finish off ripening the grapes. Matured for 22 months in 28% new French oak barriques and hogsheads, balance in 1 year and older American octaves, French barriques and hogsheads. Will continue to improve in the cellar for for 15+ years.
