The 2017 Gold Reserve Shiraz grapes were carefully selected from premium Barossa Valley vineyards.

The wine has lifted aromas of berry fruits and spice, combined with flavours of ripe raspberry, dark cherry and chocolate, producing a delicious and approachable wine with excellent length.

Previous winner of the Decanter World Wine Awards Trophy Award for best Australian Shiraz under $20.
The hand selected grapes were crushed in small open fermenters and pumped over twice daily (for 7 days) to maximise flavour and tannin extraction. The wine was then pressed off its skins and matured in 50% new and one year old French oak barriques for 16 months.
This Shiraz is deep red in colour with vibrant aromas of lifted blackberry fruit, pepper, red liquorice and a touch of vanilla. The palate shows ripe, fleshy fruit with silky tannins driving a long finish.
