This time honoured blend is our offering to Zephyrus, Greek God of the West Wind, who is often depicted as a horse due to the speed attributed to this majestic animal. Situated on a plateau on the North-Western edge of the Barossa Valley, the vineyard from where the Shiraz grapes are grown is regularly buffeted by cooling Westerly winds.

Tasting Notes:  

Deep in colour with a rich and lifted bouquet of wild berry fruits complimented with dried herb nuances. On the palate layers of ripe red fruits and wild berry characters marry seamlessly with subtle dried herb and spicy notes. Silky tannins persist the length of the palate.

This wine is a blend of individual Shiraz parcels from unique sites throughout the Barossa. The blend of cooler climate Eden Valley Shiraz (39%) and warmer climate Barossa Valley Shiraz (61%) combine beautifully to enhance the palate structure and aromatics.
