A magnificent 100% Shiraz that offers superb opulent drinking. Totally opaque black dark red colour with very dark red verging on brick red hue. The nose displays excellent intensity with perfumed aromas of liquorice, cassis and dark chocolate overlaid by some leather, vanillin oak and spicy earth nuances. Rich expansive flavours descend upon the palate in opulent fashion flooding the mouth with liquorice and cassis followed by some chocolately vanillin oak, subtle leather and spice nuances on the back palate. Velvet smooth tannins meld beautifully into the concentrated fruit profile. Superb depth with very long liquorice, cassis, dark chocolate, leather and spicy vanillin oak aftertaste.
 

Winemaking

This wine is sourced from an old dry grown vineyard with vines dating back to the early 1900’s from what we consider one of the Barossa Valley’s finest blocks. The growing season was near on perfect. An ideal vintage, which gave us the benefit of perfectly, ripened fruit. The smooth flow of vintage allowed us to select specific fruit parcels and allowed us to define the wine as much in the vineyard as the winery. These grapes are brought into the winery, and crushed into old vats where the fermentation is initiated by “wild” yeasts found on the grape skins. Careful extraction and short post fermentation maceration is followed by soft pressing. The wine is transferred into brand new oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation is completed before racking and maturation for a further 24 months in barrels. A careful assemblage and barrel selection is followed by minimal filtration and bottling then further ageing prior to release.

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
