Grape Variety 72% shiraz, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 8% merlot grapes grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley). Vintage Description Good winter and spring rains continued on to our hottest summer on record. Occasional timely thunderstorms offered a few millimetres of wonderful refreshing rain. Vintage began two to three weeks early providing only average yields but exceptional reds. Wine Description Very deep crimson in colour. Sweet ripe spicy blackberries, blackcurrants and blueberries wrapped in plums and anise with hints of vanilla and cedar. Sweet fleshy fruit on the palate, rich mature fruit flavours; soft with velvety textured tannins and a long finish. Distinctive shiraz characters. Cellaring Potential Excellent vintage, optimum year 2009. Serving Ideas Rare rump steak with smoked eggplant and roast field mushrooms. Technical Data Harvest date: 27 February Alcohol: 14 pH 3.45 Acid: 6.3
