2021 Reserve Shiraz
We make some of Western Australia's best Shiraz, as a result of the micro-climate found in the lowest part, the gully area of our Swan Valley vineyard.
The gully's clay river soil and cooler temperatures create this outstanding Shiraz, oh and a bit of decent winemaking too!
- Hand-picked and sorted
- crushed and de-stemmed
- open fermented after 36 hours cold soak
- 10 days on skins
- into French oak for 12 months maturation
BTW this is a Vegan wine, it is unfiltered and unfined- minimal intervention and all totally plant (in fact grape) based.
James Halliday on the 2018 Reserve Shiraz: 95/100

A generious sweet fruit shiraz from the Swan that really delivers plenty. It's powerfully structured butwith that Swan Valley softness that makes the region's wines so appealing as youngsters. The oak has been well managed and the tanins carefully tuned to dial in the fruit perfectly. A touch of coffee and spicy plum adds to the palate complexity.
Cellar until 2035
