🥈2015 Eighteen Acres Shiraz
Awarded 4 1/2 Stars and High Silver Medal in 2020 Winestate Magazine Best Shiraz in the world Challenge
All the grapes were sourced from our vineyard at Blewitt Springs, in the McLaren Vale region. The vineyard sits on ancient sands over clay and silt stone which dates back 750 million years.
We use minimal water which produces smaller yields and grapes with intense flavours. Our viticultural practices are organic and ultimate respect is given to the fruit in our small batch winery.
It has generous juicy fruit with hints of dark plum, black cherry, blackberry, liquorice, spice and vanilla. It is long flavoured, structured and nicely balanced with an acid line that will refresh the pallet and keep you wanting more
