A story that has intrigued us for years is the fable of the legendary founders of Ancient Rome, Romulus and Remus. These twins were abandoned at birth and reared by a she-wolf. Romulus murdered his twin in a fit of rage over the naming of Rome, the city which both had built. Legend presents Romulus as the stronger, more powerful of the brothers, while Remus was more refined, focussed and elegant. We believe the twins’ characterise the distinctive and unique flavours and attributes of Shiraz from the twin valleys - the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.

Deep garnet in colour with a complex red-cherry and blackcurrant aroma, underpinned by elements of dried spice and bay-leaf. A concentrated, fleshy and well structured palate, indicative of the moderate yielding 2016 vintage. This wine will cellar well for many years to come.
