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

Dark plums, cherries and redcurrant, Christmas cake spice with cinnamon and clove. Notes of earth, leather and roast game.

Mouth

Aged complexities, savoury tannins and a steady bead are balanced with a ripe and luscious fruit sweetness.

Growing Conditions

After an almost text book growing season, with strong winter rainfall, the 2015 harvest was kick started early by above average temperatures in February. Although an earlier than usual harvest, the subsequent wine shows fantastic varietal definition with good flavour, structure and excellent natural acidity.

Professional Reviews

"Traditional method. Open-fermented. Dry shiraz base aged in old, large-format oak for 4 years. Disgorged after 1 year in bottle. Savoury, layered aromas to start. The palate shows off juicy crimson-berried flavours, a delicate mint jube note in there too, not too sweet at all. It’s lifted by a fine mousse. Tannins coat the mouth to finish. A sophisticated iteration of sparkling shiraz that really should be heritage listed."
