Wine Details









Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) The 2003 vintage was initially warm and dry, becoming milder later in the season. These conditions prompted an early start of harvest with the fruit reaching optimum ripeness evenly. The vintage produced Shiraz with dense color, impressive varietal characters and soft tannins.

    enjoyed with Maxim and Aija at moyston st with a great rib fillet steak and roast veggies. a soft purple colour, still quite intense, a wonderful bouquet alive with fruit, delicious, full bodied with fine supporting tannins, smooth to the finish, a wonderfully complex and beautifully structured wine. wine was a gift for dad for doing a talk to some gps in 1996. kept in his study and then the last 18 months in his penfolds wine fridge.
