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

RRP $80 / 2040

A sweet, ex­ag­ger­ated style but an un­de­ni­ably pow­er­ful one. This has black­berry jam and fresh, cedary oak laid on, vi­o­let-like notes ramp­ing the headi­ness yet more. Tan­nin struts through the wine; acid buzzes. It’s a whop­per with a bit of wow fac­tor. CM 14.8% alc. This wine was pro­duced from the old­est shi­raz vine­yard on the prop­erty, planted in 1970. One of my first jobs when I com­menced em­ploy­ment af­ter com­plet­ing my school­ing was to help plant this vine­yard. The S1 Shi­raz Block is my vin­tage in­di­ca­tor block as it al­ways ripens first and al­ways pro­duces out­stand­ing shi­raz fruit qual­ity.
