Dark cherry – Plum – Spice
A complex Shiraz, deep red in colour, showing flavours of dark cherry, plum, mulberry, spice and cedar with soft tannins. A benchmark year!! Vintage 2018 in the Yarra Valley proved to be one of the strongest in the last 25 years. Spring was mild, allowing excellent fruit set and quality. The heart of the vintage was cool and dry with perfect ripening resulting in crop levels being 10-20% above average. The remarkable varietal of flavours with balanced natural acidity were evident in both Boat O’Craigo vineyard sites.
Matured for 18 months in a selection of new (30%) and seasoned French oak. Oak was carefully selected that highlights the inherent fruit flavours, adds to the spice and lengthens the palate.
