Character l Barossa Valley Shiraz was selected for the Sieger Series of wines. Fruit from 40-year-old vines gives a richness of black berries, prunes and figs. Maturation in French oak 18 months with integrated soft silky tannin.
Family vineyards, hand-crafted traditional wine-making methods show the care with fruit production from the vine to the bottle. Aromas of mocha & dried hydrated cherries and Black tea notes. A full-bodied Shiraz with elegant approachability and enjoyment.

95 points from Wine Orbit l This is instantly appealing on the nose with blackberry, vanillin oak, mocha and cake spice aromas, followed by a sumptuous palate delivering plush mouthfeel combined with chalky tannins, finishing impressively long and delectable. At its best: now to 2035. Sam Kim, Nov 2023.
