Description

LIMITED TO 6 BOTTLES PER CUSTOMER

Crafted from Clare Valley fruit from only the best vintages, Stephen George’s take on this cult style is one of the titans of the genre. Fruit has been sourced from revered Wendouree vineyards in the Clare Valley, with dry grown plantings dating back to 1919.

Nose

Blackberries, black cherries, plums and bright raspberry along with polished leather, Christmas cake spices, tar and earth.

Mouth

Dense, dark fruit and a wealth of fine tannins combine for a rich and textured effect. Savoury and maturation characters add layers to the palate. A remark-ably fresh finish for a wine this complex, concentrated and long.

Professional Reviews

"One of the very best Australian sparkling reds, the base wine ex Wendouree. Rich, deep and supple, poached plum fruit plus a touch of spice. Will flourish with time in bottle."

"The deeply distinguished complexity of Wendouree’s legendary 1919 Shiraz vines builds a sparkling Shiraz of unique character. Four years in large, old format oak makes for a particularly savoury style, layered with game and charcuterie. As always for this site, the structure is a marvel, with ultra-fine tannins and chalk minerality of its ancient Clare limestone terroir marking out a fine grained focus.”
