“The world has so many vineyards but so few have the X-factor, these are great sites that come to the fore each vintage.” — MICHAEL TWELFTREE
BARNEY’S BLOCK SHIRAZ McLAREN VALE Blueberries and red fruits leap from the glass in this exceptional single vineyard Shiraz from McMurtrie Road, McLaren Vale.
COACH HOUSE BLOCK SHIRAZ BAROSSA VALLEY The Coach House Block Shiraz comes from an estate grown single vineyard near the tiny hamlet of Greenock in the Barossa Valley. It is generous and supple whilst soft and approachable upon release. An ultra-rich, heady, mouth-filling Shiraz that combines balanced acidity and mid-palate texture.
WAZZA’S BLOCK SHIRAZ BAROSSA VALLEY Wazza’s Block is a spectacular vineyard hidden behind the palm trees in the sub-region of Seppeltsfield. This wine from an iconic block near the village combines concentration of black fruits with spice supported by muscular brawny tannin.
DAVE’S BLOCK SHIRAZ McLAREN VALE Dave’s Block is a very special old vineyard perched on an elevated site in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. The soil is classic white sand over clay, the cooler elevation allows the grapes to slowly mature. The hallmark of this wine is its lifted spicy aromatic profile and the beautifully textured and persistent tannins.
YACCA BLOCK SHIRAZ EDEN VALLEY Perched high up on the hillside of the Eden Valley, this beautifully positioned vineyard is surrounded by ancient Yaccas. The soil here is a mix of both quartz and ironstone and the vineyard’s high altitude allows for slow ripening that leads to a very soft and elegant Shiraz.
HEARTBREAK HILL SHIRAZ CLARE VALLEY Heartbreak Hill comes from a vineyard off the beaten track in tough growing country high up in the northeastern corner of the Clare Valley region. Early ripening despite its elevation, this wine displays the elegance and lively aromatics of Clare, with a powerful accent and mineral tannins.
