"Vines planted 1879, hand-picked, wild yeast-open fermented with 15% whole bunches (the remainder destemmed), 15 months in a used 2700l French cask. Bright crimson; proclaims the great vintage with its silky red and purple fruits that immediately penetrate every corner of the palate. Like Johnno's Shiraz, it is strictly medium-bodied. 290 dozen made."

"This vineyard was planted in 1879, and in 2017, it delivered a bounty of just 290 dozen bottles. The delicacy shown here is entrancing. There’s ethereal perfume, hibiscus, wild roses, red plums and subtly earthy spices. The palate has smooth tannins that are defined by an elegant yet firm, chalky texture. This has enchanting elegance and depth. Drink in a decade and cellar it for up to three!."
