Description

The 2020 season was characterized by mild weather with an average rainfall in most months, causing their harvest dates to be pushed back into the second week of March. Overall, it was a difficult season to manage considering difficulties exposed by bushfires and lockdowns that the whole country faced. Despite the low yields they are incredibly fortunate to have produced an outstanding 2020 vintage. The 2020 vintage was exceptional for Shiraz. The combination of small crops and mild-warm conditions resulted in perfect flavor development. The wines are concentrated, showcasing a red berry spectrum while retaining the high-toned aromatics of nutmeg, allspice and pepper. The only disappointing thing is how limited it is!

Review

From a single site at Seville Estate planted in 1972; 20% whole bunches and matured in seasoned French puncheons. From a cool year, this was picked on the 1st week of April meaning the fruit had plenty of hang time. Just 120 dozen made. A brilliant crimson magenta. Beautifully perfumed and pure. Redolent of raspberry coulis, peony, Asian spices and potpourri. Supremely elegant and structured, there's a gentle meatiness to go with the pure red fruits. The tannins are silky and persistent. Finishes very long and too good to spit!
