Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 Clare Shiraz is a deep inky red with plum, dark berries and a touch of spice. Moderately oaked, it is rich and satisfying with fine tannins and sweet fruit. Enjoy now or will reward careful cellaring for 5-10 years. Delicious with beef."
NZIWS 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Terrifically approachable with soft spicy vanillin oak and red fruit aromas, and bright, peppery flavours woven with chocolatey oak and succulent berries on a fine cushion of tannins, and a lingering suggestion of mint."
