Leogate Estate Wines
2013 LEOGATE ESTATE THE BASIN RESERVE HUNTER VALLEY SHIRAZ
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.
