Our Reserve Shiraz represents the finest shiraz we can make, from the best Shiraz grapes we can grow on the DOWIE DOOLE Vineyards.
It is made to showcase McLaren Vale shiraz with its classical, rich, generous characters entwined with fine tannins and new French oak.
To protect our philosophy, the Reserve is made in very limited quantities, without compromise and only when vintage conditions allow for a supreme shiraz wine.
Colour: Deep purple.
Nose: A complex nose of dark fruits, leather, spices and dark chocolate.
Palate: The full bodied palate is rich and generous and follows on from the bouquet with blackberry, plums, spices and dark chocolate. A complex wine with excellent tannin structure, length and weight.

“A worthy follow up to the excellent '12. The aromas are classic McLaren Vale shiraz plum, hint of spice wrapped in classy French oak. The palate is a delicious melange of fruit, tannin and spice laden oak; long and well framed.” James Halliday
