THE YEAR THAT
We started plans to extend the cellar door

Shiraz is what the Oliver’s love and it is in Shiraz that they trust. A full-bodied, rich wine; dark chocolate and mocha notes fill the nose, while the palate is all mulberries, dutch liquorice and cacao. It will reward aging, just as the same sweet patch of dirt has rewarded the Oliver family for generations.

Lifted cherry berry, mulberry freshness, liquorice and plenty of spice. Mouth watering tannins, sweet fruited and dark chocolate to finish. Delish!

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2018
The Real Review

‘Dark chocolate and black plums, powerful aromatics - a mix of new and old oak. A measured dose of sweetness hits the front palate - savoury, coffee-bean complexity follows. Compelling shiraz. Speaks of region.’

Qwine

‘One of those reliable drops you can easily turn to when the bottle shop shelves become a blur. It’s a dense wine with a good whack of cedary oak. Think dark plums and berries, dark chocolate plus licorice all adding interest. Faint dashes of soy and baking spices come late with attractive fine spices clutching long. The depth of fruit fills the palate with ease calling you back with its moreish appeal.’

James Halliday Wine Companion 2021

From 8-10yo estate blocks, open-fermented, matured in French and American hogsheads for 18 months. Dense, impenetrable purple; a full-bodied shiraz with dark chocolate/licorice/stewed plum flavours, fine-grained tannins and good length. Has its whole life in front of it.
