(2022) Again, from lower-lying vineyards around 600 metres, this is a selection of the best Shiraz, matured in French oak puncheons for 12 months, around 30% new oak. It's been in bottle for a couple of years longer than the Ross Hill, and is a much meatier style aromatically with bacon fat, spices and some coffee grounds, but a ripe core of red plum fruit is there. On the palate that sweetness bursts through, a lovely weight of ripe fruit, but constrained and finessed by very fine-grained tannins and plenty of cool climate acid structure.
