2013 LEOGATE ES­TATE THE BASIN RE­SERVE HUNTER VAL­LEY SHI­RAZ

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $150 / 2025

An im­pe­ri­ous wine from a re­gion that, at its best, is de­fined by the savoury firm, pol­ished leather tan­nins em­bed­ded in this highly com­plex ex­pres­sion. Li­lac flo­rals, smoked deli meats, black olive and an umami thread of bouil­lon are all tamed by the regional ge­net­ics, as­sisted by well ap­plied oak (15% new, all French, 14 months) and tem­pered acid­ity. NG 14% alc.

WINE­MAKER Mark Woods What do you be­lieve makes this wine so spe­cial?

Our 2013 The Basin Re­serve Shi­raz is sourced from an iso­lated east-fac­ing par­cel of land on our own 50-year-old his­toric Bro­ken­back Vine­yard. A very proud mo­ment for all the Leogate staff was when this wine was se­lected for ser­vice on Qan­tas In­ter­na­tional Flights in First Class Cab­ins.
