2016 First Duke Reserve Shiraz
Spice – Dark red fruits – Soft tannins
Limited Release – This limited release wine is a fitting tribute to our forefather, James Graham, who became the First Duke Of Montrose in 1707.
A beautifully balanced and complex Yarra Valley Shiraz; vibrant red in colour. Lifted aromas of dark cherry, liquorice, spice and black olive arouse the senses, while the palate is bursting with rich red berries, plum and mocha flavours. A select parcel of fruit, hand picked and sorted from the Kangaroo Ground vineyard. Matured for 18 months in a selection of new (50%) and seasoned French oak. Barrel selected for limited release production.
Only 130 dozen made.
