A blend of vineyards ranging from Marananga , Stonewell, Greenock and the YP Estate which is in the Valley Floor. Vines ranging from 10 - 50 year old cropped at slightly higher than normal levels to achieve a softer, fruit driven style of wine with keeping the alcohol at a reasonable level.

This is an easy wine to like and one glass just doesn't seem enough.

Fresh-faced version of Barossa Shiraz.
Summer berry pudding, spice and new leather. Medium bodied, juicy red berries, a bit of spice and dried herb, firm acidity, grainy tannin, and a spicy and tangy finish of sound length. Fruit first here, and a good easy drinking version of Barossa Shiraz it is too.

Made in a restrained and elegant style that is almost atypical of the Barossa Valley, yet with plenty of fruit-flavoured intensity right through the palate. Lovely fruit showing light red berry & spicy plum, with grainy tannins and neatly worked oak that doesn't intrude. Just gets it right.
