This wine is made from selected premium parcels of Shiraz grown by Kurtz Family Vineyards. The wine was matured in a mixture of new and older French and American Oak hogsheads for 24 months prior to bottling. The bouquet shows a great expression of bright Shiraz fruit with plum, sweet vanilla, floral notes, and spice. Silky, dusty tannins combine with pure fruit to form an ample-weight wine with a supple consistency, and an agreeable complexity. Blackberry, violets, plum and chocolate flavours, together with loads of dried herbs, finish slightly sour but with good length.
