This is blue blood Mudgee terroir. The original vignerons chose this vineyard site on Craigmoor road because of the soil quality and its access to the three wineries around it. Our philosophy revolves around what is new in wines, while respecting the essential style of Mudgee; concentration with finesse.
The wines should always be aromatic; a modern condition that we agree with having worked with many sommeliers and wine aficionados over the last three years.
Oak maturation is important for rounding the wine but oak must be in the background.
64% Shiraz | 36% Cabernet Sauvignon
Mudgee (500m), NSW Central Highlands
The third release and by far the most successful by acclaim. We vary the two varieties according to the whims of the season. In 2013, we kept the Cabernet Sauvignon in the background due to its strong natural tannin and the need to have the wine balanced.
The aromas display generous aromas of stewed plum and blackcurrant with anise, spice and black pepper.
A generous, medium to fuller bodied wine. The concentrated fruit flavours are well balanced with the oak and tannin structure.
This is wine that will reward cellaring. Don’t be afraid to hide this wine in the cellar for up to 10 years.
