    Almost black in colour with purple flints - excellent depth. The bouquet is tight, demonstrating pine needles, dusty cherries, liquorice and beef blood. The palate is initially sweet, with a beautiful framework of purple fruits, earth and tar. Excellent acid balance with good fruit concentration building in the mid palate finishing with dry grainy tannins.

    The grapes are handpicked and fermented with natural yeasts in open stainless steel tanks at temperatures up to 32 degree Celsius. All the pressings are returned to the 100% new French oak barriques and the maturation lasts for 18 months before bottling without fining or filtration.

    This is always the most beautiful wine in the cellar and is the flagship of the Clarendon Hills Syrah Range.

    Deep purple colour. The nose shows intense, complex cedary, fig, blackberry and blueberry with occasional pepper/spice too. A powerful full-bodied berry fruit flavour, with a little sweet English toffee- like oak evident on the juicy, rolling finish. Restrained tannin and acidity coupled with rich alcohol, produce a seamless, peppery, velvety rolling length.

    A great example of Barossan shiraz. Rich and ripe blackberry fruit partner with well integrated charry oak in the background. A luscious mouthfeel with some earthy tobacco and licorice nuances. Finishes long. Has developed beautifully and is drinking well.

    Upon release, ‘The Dead Arm’ Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense, purple-red colour. Very intense aromas with a complex combination of fragrant spices and violets, dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry, are made more complex with great liquorice, pepper and integrated svelte of boot-polish like characters. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with attacking spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry, plum and dried black olive. The level of fruit weight masks the framework of oak tannins; however, the mineral fruit grittiness is balanced with a very long fruit-fragrant, persistent spice will yield a wine of great ageing power.

    The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.

    The 2003 season was characterised by a very low winter rainfall which signalled the vine to minimize potential crop load. The ripening period was warm producing a crop load of small berries and very pure, ripe fruit characters. Even with a smaller than normal crop load many batches showed wonderful fruit characters due to an excellent skin to pulp ratios and this is evident in the final wine. This year in particular selected parcels of fruit deemed worthy of the Dead Arm label were down 50% in volume.

    As with the previous vintages of Oscar Semmler Shiraz the 2002 shows big and full, almost “juicy” flavours of plum and red berry fruit. Spicy French oak characters give support to the sweet fruit mid palate concentration. The finish is long, highlighted by fruit clean acidity and soft drying tannin.

    Very rich powerful entry of blackberry with savoury spice, licorice and dark chocolate filling out the mid palate, leading to a long finish balanced by well integrated tannin structure of great depth.

    Vibrant rim with an intense dark plum core. The nose of this wine is powerful and aromatic. It has a suggestion of a rich intense wine with plenty of blackberry fruit. The oak shows as a sweet, lifted character and has an enticing effect in combination with the powerful fruit aroma. This wine is a typical McLaren Vale Shiraz. With a strong central core of black fruit, there is a sweetness that only comes from a region such as this. The fruit is well balanced by firm yet very soft tannins and the finish is dry and lengthy, with acidity to carry the wine through a few years in the bottle.

    Very deep red with vibrant ruby rim. Powerful aromatics of blackberry, licorice and all spice. The subtle lifted vanilla from barrel fermentation adds complexity. Typical of our best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, showing strong vibrant black fruit with richness that is achieved only in a region such as this. The depth and intensity of the palate is well balanced by a firm tannin structure. The finish shows great length and has supporting acid sufficient to allow for mid term cellaring.

    Full-throttle Shiraz are fashioned from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family. This is an unabashed, flamboyant, Aussie wine that is loaded with fruit, fragrance, glycerin, and intensity. This is the type of wine that Eurocentric wine tasters and condescending elitists tend to dismiss, but it is a fascinating effort the likes of which are made nowhere else in the world. There is certainly no shortage of flavor, and if you like your wines exuberant, flamboyant, and over-sized, this wine fills the tab, and then some. Food Matching: Grilled or roast beef, bigbeefy stews, venison, Cheddar cheese.

    The fruit for Gregor Shiraz is sourced from Shiraz vines planted in 1988 on our home block high in the Barossa Ranges. The soils are rocky, yellow podzolic matter over clays.

    The fruit is handpicked before being placed on racks and semi dried in the style of the famous Amarone wines of Italy. The grapes are then naturally fermented in open vats before being aged in new French Oak 1350L vats and puncheons for a period of 24 months. Bottled unfiltered.

     

    Tasting notes: Sweet, open, herb-tinged red fruits on the nose. Sweet and beguiling. The palate is smooth and supple with an interesting herb-like sweetness. Soft finish.

    Old Vine Shiraz is a wine that will never be overtly fruity. It is best suited to those who prefer a savoury style. We are very happy with this wine and it will be fascinating watching this one age, it should go the distance.

    Unmistakable old vine Block 6 Shiraz mouth filling lip smacking intensity. Vibrant ripe fruit multi-layered with intense blackberry, dark chocolate, plum, mulberry, spice and liquorice flavours.

     

    The mouth feel is silky and the fine tannin structure adds the perfect balance to the long lingering finish. The robust, toasty, vanillin characters come from 28 months maturation in 100% new American and Eastern European oak, with the time in wood allowing the process of oak and fruit integration to evolve displaying the rich layering of this beautifully balanced and structured full bodied red.

    The 2002 vintage at Langhorne Creek is regarded as one of the best for many years and has resulted in a Shiraz of great distinction. The bouquet, whilst quiet tight at this early stage, show a lovely combination of lifted red and black berries, spice, earth, tars and leather. This combination of sweet and savoury characteristics follows through to the palate that is rich, ripe and opulent and shows a wonderful balance between fruit, soft ripe tannins, acid and oak. The flavours are vibrant, complex and quiet intense and will continue to develop for many years to come.

    What was originally known for over 100 years as Ellen Street runs along the southern boundary of the Maxwell vineyards. Situated between this road and the winery is a small vineyard of craggy, gnarled Shiraz vines planted in 1953. Every year these vines bear some of the best fruit on the estate, however in very small quantities, with an average crop of between 1 and 2 tonnes per acre.
