Ladies who Shoot their Lunch 2015 Shiraz

90
This wine is deep crimson in colour with hints of purple at the rim. On the nose, intense lifted aromas of ripe red berries play with notes of violet, pepper and dark chocolate. The palate is full bodied with complex forest fruits, spice and velvety tannins leading to an elegant, long finish.

We blended our Strathbogie Shiraz with parcels of fruit from other regions in order to achieve the style we seek to craft our Ladies who Shoot their Lunch wine, including what may be the last ever Shiraz from the iconic Mt Helen vineyard. These vines had an incredibly low yield of less than one tonne to the acre. The intense and elegant characteristics of this fruit combined with our Upton Run fruit create a wine with the perfume, texture and balance to match wild game - and is a perfect example of a powerful cool climate spicy Shiraz.
