An exceptional terroir wine with a strong regional identity and the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring. After 18 months of barrel maturation we were excited to bottle just 200 cases of this unfiltered batch.

The deepest, youthful, dark ruby
Marrying power and elegance, the nose is an explosion of aromas; orange bitters, citrus marmalade, pink peppercorns, slow roasted game, charcuterie, with a hint of spiced vanilla oak notes
The palate is intense and youthful with dark roasted spice notes; cardamom, black peppercorns, mace and chocolate-covered candied orange. A heady floral element reminiscent of spring lilac and wisteria lingers. Despite the freshness and intensity of the fruit, the mid-palate is full-weight, masculine and muscular, the tannins leaving just enough room for elegant notes of toasted cinnamon oak that lingers and warms
Shiraz 100%
20+ years
Food Pairing Notes
This wine cries for rich holiday dinners and family celebrations.
The Vineyard
Sourced exclusively from our block 5, located on Cape Mentelle’s original Trinders Vineyard in Margaret River. This area exhibits the classic gravelly, lateritic, free-draining soils where the microclimate is strongly influenced by the Indian ocean just 5 km to our west. The block is manually spur-pruned and the individual vines are meticulously handled throughout the season with intensive canopy management to ensure best fruit exposure. In April 2015 this Shiraz fruit was hand-harvested in into small 6.5kg crates to allow careful delivery to the winery, 300m down the gravel path
After hand-tipping, destemming, individual berry sorting and light crushing the batch was fermented then soaked on skins for 50 days. Barrel work was introduced early in the rotation for the best integration. It was then gently basket pressed and racked to barrel, 50% of them new with approximately 80% French and 20% American in origin, for malolactic fermentation. The wine then matured in those barrels for 18 months with minimal sulphur and limited aerative racking
14.0% alcohol, 6.1 g/l total acidity, 3.56 pH
