Product Description


2018 (picked on April 9)


Shiraz, fussed over constantly by our father all year round – hence the name, read the back label, the old bloke is living the dream


Combination of 3 and 4 year old American Oak


Grapes were crushed and de-stemmed, fermented on skins for 8 days and plunged 3 times a day for maximum extraction of colour and flavour


Southern Adelaide Hills, so close to McLaren Vale we can hear ‘A Day On The Green’

This was a perfect season with the fruit enjoying optimal ripening to ensure full flavour development and balance of acid and tannins. There’s so much on offer here, blueberry, spice and a hint of eucalyptus. This wine will see improvement up to and beyond 10 years in the cellar.
