A single block Shiraz from 46 year old vines grown on ancient dark grey slaty siltstone soils flecked with ironstone facing South East at an altitude of 108m. Iron file and shavings, meaty with dark brooding edges, blood in the mouth, and ferric. Savoury charcuterie on the palate with lithe structural core, full of energy. Finishes open knit with sandy fine grained tannin.
