Personally Produced

Hand picked and carefully nurtured from the "Vineyard to the Bottle!" Maturing in French oak for up to 14months. The wine has developed into a well balanced, full, rich, dark fruit flavored yet elegant style, making it ready for you to enjoy now with great potential for cellaring. A full-bodied Shiraz with enough French oak integration giving it complexity without overshadowing the fresh, fragrant, lifted fruit expression.

The wine reflects a defined and clear expression of a Barossa Shiraz!


This wine is:

  • Carefully handpicked at the optimum "Baume" and fruit flavor levels.
  • It is crushed within an hour or so of being picked.
  • Manually "racked" at least four times before bottling.
  • Subtly matured in French Oak for up to 14 months

"I am Personally involved in every part of the process from tasting the juice to ascertain the right time to pick the fruit through to bottling!"
