Winemaker's Tasting Notes
100 Year Old Vines - Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia

The fruit from these old bush vines, which are some of the oldest in the world, are cropped at 1 tonne to the acre and results in intense flavours rarely found. 2004 will be ranked amongst rthe top vintages of the last 10-15 years; a long even ripening season, with a short burst of weather right at the end. The grapes achieved full maturity with great fruit intensity and flavour. The bouquet shows bright fruit characters dominated by jube and blackberry, enhanced with subtle sweet notes from the French Oak maturation. The palate is rich, concentrated and long balanced with texture tannins and good acidity. This wine, with careful cellaring, will reach it’s full potential in 8-10 years.
