RRP $69.95 / 2035

The flag bearer for San­guine Es­tate, and rightly so. It is in the full-bod­ied arena of al­most all of San­guine’s Shi­razs, but its op­u­lence is pol­ished and sup­ple, black berries, plums and cur­rants sup­ported by bal­anced tan­nins. The goodqual­ity, prop­erly-in­serted and wax-sealed cork should do its job for the 20-plus years needed for this wine to com­plete its jour­ney. 15% alc. This wine is care­fully crafted each year to pay homage to an in­cred­i­ble event that oc­curred nearly 20 years ago. We dis­cov­ered that my great-great grand­fa­ther Pi­etro D’Orsa im­mi­grated to Aus­tralia in the late 1860s with vines in hand and planted a vine­yard in Mal­don, a town not that far from where we had planted our own vine­yard.
