Our Shiraz has been produced since 2005 from the Lopresti family’s Nursery block, from grapes that were planted in 1994. Tony will happily rave about the canopy to fruit ratio and firm savoury tannins of these incredible grapes, and in the bottle, they produce a punchy, deep wine that is alarmingly easy to drink.
Try it with: a vegetarian lasagne or the best beef fillet with a mushroom sauce.
Colour: Intense deep red with vivid crimson rim.
Nose: Concentrated bright deep blum and blackberries with a touch of aniseed and cinnamon.
Palate: A rich entry of bright plum and blackberry leading to a complex melding of intense dark fruits and spice, well integrated oak and fine persistent tannins, ending in a beautifully balanced long finish.
Advisable to decant prior to serving to see this wine at its best. Drinking well on release to 2028 and beyond in ideal cellaring conditions.
