The shiraz is vibrant red with medium depth of colour. Spicy notes of pepper, violet and subtle oak lift from the glass. The palate is balanced with fresh red and blue fruits, hints of spice and fine, silky tannins.

Wine Making

2017 experienced lower temperatures and higher than average rainfall. To keep the vines and yields in check, we had to thin the canopies much more than usual. The cool temperature meant that the harvest date was extended to late April; this is one of the latest on record for Shiraz.
The long hang time of the grapes and cold conditions have provided great expression of spicy cool climate shiraz, as pepper intensity is greatest in cooler years.
2017 was one of the most challenging vintages I have seen in 17 years, however I would rate this wine as one of best examples of Ladies Shiraz we have made.
