Our Riesling Block vineyard was first planted in 1919 to a mixture of varieties. In the late 1970s it was planted to riesling before eventually grafted across to shiraz is the late 1980s.
The resulting wine is always rich and powerful, and in 2018 it was one of our top performing blocks albeit with miniscule yields. Full, intense and richly flavoured shiraz.
“Mulberries and plums meld with red liquorice and spicy oak, complex and primary. A wine of tremendous vitality, raspberry and plum fruits glide across the palate, a tease of mocha, high-toned acidity adds freshness. Modern in its elegance while celebrating the region. Very good indeed. 94 points" - Huon Hooke
