2018 DAIRY BLOCK GRAND VIN SHIRAZ
Picked from a small parcel of specially selected old vines, north facing at high altitude. This portion of the vineyard is hand manicured from pruning through to shoot and fruit thinning to produce a very special parcel of grapes. Selectively harvested, berry sorted and matured in 33% new French oak for 14 months.
Vivid mid ruby colour with a deep brick red hue. Intense aromas of spice, pepper and sweet raspberries with hints of black olives. Flavours carry over to the palate, with depth and intensity. Soft, drying and velvety tannins, combined with subtle cedary oak flavours, give great structure and length.
This wine is a stunning example of an Adelaide Hills Shiraz with wonderful rich and powerful tannins with great cellaring potential.
