A deep and rich Shriaz made from vines that are over 125 years old... thats older than me...and my mother...and my gran...and my great gran.....wow...thats old.
Region: Mclaren Vale
A limited release wine, the EJ Shiraz is sourced from 125+ year-old vines from our Thomas Block vineyard, which is renowned for producing fruit of exceptional flavour and natural balance. The Shiraz vines are amongst the oldest in McLaren Vale and are carefully hand pruned and thinned to ensure the low and uniform yields required for super premium Shiraz.
Although still very young, the wine shows classic McLaren Vale Shiraz characteristics, with an elegant, delicate front exploding with a concentration of savoury fruit, supported by full, silky tannins unique to old vine wine.
An exemplary Shiraz not to be missed!
