Our 2022 Central Victorian Shiraz showcases the exceptional qualities of this vintage. Through the labour-intensive process of hand picking and foot stomping, this wine pays homage to the artistry and traditions of winemaking. Aged for 12 months in a combination of new (33%) and aged French oak barrels, it offers a symphony of flavours and textures capturing the essence of Central Victoria, intertwining vibrant fruit, alluring spice, and subtle oak influences.

Appearance: In the glass, this Shiraz displays a deep red with opaque purple colour, indicating its concentration and still youthful vibrancy.

Aroma: The bouquet of this wine is an enticing blend of rich fruit, spice, and subtle oak influences: 

  • Intense Black Forest fruits, blackberry and ripe plum aromas dominate, offering a luscious and inviting fruitiness.

  • A delicate wisp of smoky oak introduces a refined and integrated wood character and vanilla sent that is unmistakable. 

  • Subtle nuances of warm baking spices, such as cinnamon and clove along with hints of dark chocolate, add complexity and depth.

Palate: As the wine caresses your palate, it unfolds with layers of flavour and texture:

  • The palate is filled with a burst of ripe blackberries, juicy black cherries, and plump blueberries, providing a harmonious fruit profile.

  • Fine-grained tannins lend structure and a velvety mouthfeel, contributing to the wine's balanced and supple nature.

  • The foot stomping process imparts a gentle touch of rusticity, enhancing the wine's authenticity and connection to traditional winemaking.

  • A subtle thread of vanilla and toasty oak weaves through the palate, adding a luxurious and lingering finish.

  • The finish is long, elegant, and filled with a sense of depth and satisfaction.

Food Pairing: This Shiraz pairs wonderfully with robust and flavourful dishes. Consider enjoying it alongside grilled rib-eye steak, slow-cooked lamb shanks, or a hearty wild mushroom risotto. Its bold flavours and well-structured profile will complement and elevate these culinary experiences.
