Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Our tightly held VSV (or very special vineyard) wines are only made in exceptional years when a single site delivers the ultimate harmony of varietal and region. Ralph and Angela Schrapel manage a small patch of dry grown Shiraz planted by Ralph’s great-great-great grandfather in 1885 in the Ebenezer district. Ralph’s father Lloyd and Peter Lehmann have been close friends for more than 50 years, and the Schrapel family has been a key fruit supplier since the winery’s first vintage. Ralph, like Peter, is now a Baron of the Barossa in his own right for his outstanding contribution to viticulture, which is captured in this special wine.

The colour is bright with a deep crimson hue leading to a complex bouquet showing abundant dark plums, spice and a hint of charry oak in the background. The palate is typical 1885, soft and elegant with a long, intense blue fruited finish. This is a stylish, fruit driven dry red derived from an ancient vineyard planted in 1885. It is delicious in its youth but can be aged with confidence for many years if so desired."
