2015 Shiraz

This wine is the result of a plan we set out many years ago, to add a new clone of Shiraz to our vineyard with the goal of creating a premium wine. 2015 was the first vintage of the new planting that delivered outstanding fruit - this "Great Western Best's Block" clone makes up 45% of the blend, with another 31% coming from upper rows of our oldest Shiraz block and 11% from the lower rows. We also blended in 10% Grenache and 3% Roussanne.

We think this is the best Shiraz we've made - it's a distinct style that reflects both the blending choices, and the unique terrain of our vineyard.

Drink to 2025. Winemaker: Alex McKay. 13.2% alc.

Note that this is a pre-release - while it is in a few restaurants, it is not available in bottle shops.

Here's what James Halliday said: 

From the granite, quartz and limestone soils of the estate vineyard, hand-picked, 20% whole bunches. Deep crimson-purple hue; a compellingly rich, intense and focused shiraz with black cherry and anise aromas and flavours that relegate oak and tannins into second-tier importance - 94 points.
