Tasting notes

Small berries, low yields and open bunches characterise the Shiraz grown on Christo’s Paddock. These old vines produce grapes with great flavour intensity and richness, which are hand-picked before being gently pressed. Once the fermentation was complete the wine was pressed into a combination of new (40%) and old French oak barrels, where it matured for 18 months. Expect red and black berries, coffee and dark chocolate with a savoury edge and soft round tannins providing great structure and length.
