The Story: Flares (not guilty), pirate shirts (guilty as charged),shoulder pads (more Maree’s thing), they all look ridiculous 5 years after being the height of fashion. There is also fashion in wine, think big rich, sweet tannic Shiraz, or the current trend for early picked, lean and stemmy Syrah. The best wines must transcend fashion as they will be at their peak when the trend has long past. Our 2016 Lethbridge Shiraz is a reflection of site (planted in 1969) and shows the intensity of flavour of vieilles vignes (old vines). We are proud of this beautifully balanced wine with flavour texture that will delight for many years.

94 points, Halliday 2019 Wine Companion
“This is immaculately poised, beaming violet, wakame and licorice scents over a bow of bouncy blue fruits. Holding its alcohol effortlessly and striking a pose between peppery cool climate-compact and right-on-the-money ripeness. Highly aromatic and finely wrought, this impressive wine unravels across a detailed weave of tannin, with effusive acidity towing it all long.”
