A single block of Shiraz from 30 year old vines grafted on Gewurztraminer planted in 1974 by Jill and Don Cant, the previous owners. Lifted blue, black briory fruit with a touch of cedar. Super classic wood spice and sweet fruit on the palate, finishing savoury and mineral with lithe fine grained emery board tannins. Needs time, but that taut structural will evolve beautifully.
