Sevenhills was established in 1851, the first ever winery in the Clare Valley. According to the ‘Old Vine Charter’, Sevenhill’s Clare Valley Shiraz vines used in this wine would qualify as Ancient – more than 70 years old and some are well over 100 years. This is a heart warming, big, bold Shiraz – it's 15.8% alcohol, but such is the depth and concentration, this doesn't dominate. It just a big mouth filling, satisfying wine, yet balanced.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"With so many wines made from young Shiraz vines, here is a generous Shiraz made with fruit from mature vineyards that were planted more than 70 years ago. These deep-rooted vines impart great depth of flavour. After above-average winter rains and drier conditions in spring, hot weather in January 2015 accelerated ripening, leading to an earlier start to vintage in February. The rapid ripening meant red and white varieties were ready for picking at the same time, contributing to long days of harvesting and processing. As a result, vintage in Clare finished early before the end of March without any severe impact on quality.
Sevenhill's irreplaceable, 100-year slate fermenters provide the perfect dimensions for small-batch, hand-plunged fermentation of red wines, including Shiraz.
Blending from several parcels ensures our Shiraz embraces the distinctive Sevenhill character. Lower yields from the 2015 vintage concentrated flavours, producing rich varietal style for this refined Shiraz. The intense dark-red fruits of the 2015 Inigo Shiraz integrate smoothly with white-pepper spice and grainy tannin. The colour is a dense black cherry. An aromatically spiced, pepper and pencil oak nose, scents of menthol and mint. The palate shows a generous expression of fleshy, ripe plum fruit with cassis. Full bodied, the finish has firm, soft tannins from French oak maturation. A mellow cigar box and spicy finish.
The Inigo range pays homage to St.Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuits."
