Shiraz produces Australia’s most notable dry red wines. The variety is very successful on sites that allow the vine to attain flavour ripeness whilst retaining balanced levels of sugar, tannin and acid. Blue Pyrenees Estate Vineyard is one such site.
Produced from parcels of fruit grown on low-yielding exposed vines creating a wine of intense flavours, naturally soft tannin and the classic rich Shiraz structure. Maturation for 18 months in a combination of new, one, and two-year-old French and American oak barriques has added softness, texture and complexity to a wine of varietal flavours.
Bright ruby red liquid. The aromas are of black pepper over blueberry fruit and a background of cedar and vanilla oak.
The regional blueberry fruit gives way to the classic Shiraz pepper and spice notes and a vibrant mid-palate of chocolate, vanilla, and balanced acidity. The soft tannin structure of this wine allows lingering fruit flavours to shine throughout the long dry finish.
Can be enjoyed now or cellared with confidence for 10 years.

93 Points & Special Value Wine - James Halliday "The wine reflects the excellent vintage, starting with its crimson-purple colour, and finishing with the aftertaste; inbetween you get a bouquet filled with black cherry and plum fruit, with notes of spice and licorice joining in on the medium-bodied palate, the finish with fine, savoury tannins. Excellent value."
