Wine

making Notes

This is a very special expression of Barossa Valley Shiraz, arguably Australian wine’s most recognisable region and varietal. This parcel was sourced from 30 year old own rootstock vines of a Light Pass vineyard. The parcel was hand picked and bunch sorted before destemming and then open fermented.  It was cold soaked and then spent 8 days on skins followed by 18 months in 20% new French Oak and 5% American oak barriques. The remainder was matured in 2-4 year old seasoned barrels.  This wine is an excellent example of the outstanding results possible, when an allegiance between growers and winemakers creates their best expression of the varietal and vintage. Cellar potential of another 15+ years.

Colour

Deep red crimson with purple hues

Nose

Rich aromas of intense mocha, dark berries with spicy, cedary oak.

Palate

Palate shows intensity, richness and a luscious generous mouthfeel.  Filled with attractive blackberries, dark plum, subtle vanillan essences and toasty oak held together with silky smooth tannins.  The finish is long and complex –  completing a very classy wine.

Dedication

Shoulder to shoulder we stand with pride, love and unity

Erik de Haart survived one of Australia’s worst tragedies - the 2002 Bali bombings.  The heartbreaking loss of his Coogee Dolphins team mates and the horrendous aftermath of the attack will never leave him. Whilst his courageous and selfless efforts on that terrible night saved many lives, Erik personally retreated from the hero tag that everyone else believed he deserved.  After many years of suffering in silence, Erik has displayed even more courage to bring attention to one of our society’s most insidious dangers – the mental anguish he suffers through the guilt of those he couldn’t save.  Erik’s powerful story will continue to assist other people in our community to seek assistance with their own problems.  Whilst we will never know the ever present emotional pain he endures, we stand shoulder to shoulder with Erik in pride, love and unity.

Reviews

96 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  This is wonderfully ripe and richly expressed on the nose showing dark fruit intensity together with vanillin oak, fragrant spice, game and thyme characters, leading to a powerfully expressed palate that’s weighty and mouthfilling. It’s opulent and splendidly framed by fine, grainy tannins, making it firmly structured and immediately appealing at the same time. At its best: now to 2033.
