2010 White Label Shiraz
The White Label Shiraz is drawn exclusively from our 1970 planted vines, vines that are amongst the pioneers for this variety in the Yarra Valley. This wine has historically been acknowledged as the signature expression of our estate. Always elegant, medium bodied and intense in its faithful reflection of site and seasonal conditions, it combines cool dark fruit characters harmoniously with more restrained brooding savoury elements. Aged in French oak barrels (40% new) for 15 months it will provide immediate enjoyment whilst rewarding patient & careful cellaring for 15 – 20 years.
Made also from our old vines planted in 1970. This wine is our flagship – the depth and intensity of flavour from these vines is exceptional. Definitely not a “blockbuster” style, but with lovely elegance, and well proven ageing qualities.
