About the Vineyard
Due to a wet spring and cool, humid growing season, our South
Australian Shiraz vineyards were harvested two to three weeks
later than we have experienced in the preceding decade. Fine
and clear weather during the harvest period made for excellent
flavor and tannin accumulation in our Shiraz grapes, as seen in this outstanding wine.
Deep crimson purple in color, a cascade of wild berries -
boysenberry, blackberry and blueberry - accompany aromas
of black forest cake framed with Indian spices. Rich and ripe,
the Y Series Shiraz is a glorious mouthful of South Australia
with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake. This is
surrounded by soft, juicy, fully ripe tannins.
This wine drinks perfectly with venison sausages, potato mash
and gravy; or enjoy with vegetarian nachos.
