Single vineyard hand picked fruit (can be rare in Oz!) with optimal ripeness, whole-bunches added to the vats lead to a velvety texture and an intense nose. The juice is then matured for 12 months in French oak, adding spicy elements and a rounded texture.

 

This is pretty classic Hunter Valley Shiraz - brooding and laden with black fruit richness, with restrained but decadent creaminess and spicing from the lick of oak. Big black cherry and cocoa vibes but with a fresh lift and balance. This is going to be able to age nicely too, if you've the patience.
