Shiraz (formerly known as ‘Hermitage’) is an important part of Coonawarra’s history. The acknowledged reputation of Coonawarra for age-worthy wines has largely centred on Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz blends. However, the very early history (in the 1890s) centred on other varieties – particularly Shiraz.
Displaying great fruit character, this wine has rich and complex flavours of red berries, spice and chocolate with layered fruit underpinned by tightly focused tannins.
Nose: Concentrated notes of dark cherry and blood plums, followed by raspberry, bay leaf and lavender.
Palate: Dark and focused, filled with juicy and vibrant fruit. Blood plum and magnolia on the mid-palate. Sleek, plush tannins frame bright fruit, creating a seamless, layered wine, indicative of its cool-climate home.
