SKU: YYREDNO216
A shiraz dominant blend with inspiration drawn from France's Rhone Valley. The shiraz and marsanne planted in 1969, mataro and viognier planted from 1984 to 1995: all unirrigated. Fragrance and headiness to the fore, this is a wine style that has always been blended for perfume, texture and spice.

”95% shiraz, 2% viognier, 2% mataro, 1% marsanne, whole berries open-fermented with some stalks added back in, some batches with frozen viognier skins on the bottom, some with marsanne skins, matured for 12 months in French barriques (30% new). The most highly aromatic bouquet with perfumed fruits and spices dancing on the forest floor, the palate a liquid expression of the bouquet. Alive with juicy, gently savoury tannins beating a beautiful tattoo, the finish drawn out by the peacock's tail of the multifaceted aftertaste.”
– James Halliday
