Notes about product

After a wet winter, spring was warmer and drier than average. Late spring and early summer were relatively mild, resulting in good flowering and fruit set. There were several heat spikes in mid to late summer, but then a perfect Autumn followed with favourable ripening conditions. Despite a later start and an earlier finish, the compressed harvest produced wines of deep colour, flavour and impeccable balance.

Production notes

Grapes were harvested from February 16th to April 18th. The wine spent 26 months in 15% new American oak, 85% seasoned American and French oak hogsheads.

Tasting notes

Rich and lifted aromas of Satsuma plum, mulberry and florals mingle with sweet spice, chocolate and savoury notes. Rich, plumy fruit and sweet spice balances with soft, velvety tannins. A complex, medium to full bodied wine showing hints of mocha, bramble and vanilla which flow through to the lengthy, fruitful, peppery and spicy finish.

Joe Czerwinski, August 2021

Marked by scents of vanilla and cedar, the 2018 Valley Floor Shiraz boasts enough blackberry and mulberry fruit to easily handle the wood (15% new American oak, with the balance a mix of used French and American barrels). Full-bodied and supple, almost creamy in texture, it's concentrated yet balanced, with a long, mouthwatering finish.

July 2021

Expressive and evolving, with firm acidity driving sweet, super-succulent blueberry and strawberry, before the vanilla-toned finale.
