Ratings: 90 points | James Suckling 2017
Awards: Double Gold Medal: 2017 San Francisco International Wine Competition (Class 231)

Gold Medal: 2017 International Wine Challenge
Silver Medal: 2017 Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition
Silver Medal: 2017 International Wine & Spirits Competition (Class 1a)
Vineyard Notes: Shiraz was sourced predominantly from low-yielding vineyards across the Barossa Valley floor, which provide intensity and rich, bright fruit character. This was supplemented by cooler climate Eden Valley fruit contributing fragrance, elegance and subtle spicy notes.

Vintage Conditions:
Good winter rains held promise for the season, but spring was very dry, giving rise to early flowering and fruit-set. Summer was mild, with a downpour in mid- January doing no more than refresh the vines. A very warm February brought on an early, condensed harvest, with March conditions cooling significantly. Reds are well coloured and full of flavour.
Winemaker Notes: Following crushing, individual vineyard batches were fermented with a mix of plunging and pumping-over applied to allow optimum release of colour and flavour without excessive extraction of tannin. After pressing the wines were racked to 85% seasoned and 15% new French oak for 18 months' maturation prior to blending, gentle fining and bottling.
Food Pairing: Gold Label Shiraz is great with beef ribs with hoisin sauce, or spiced lamb burgers with beetroot salsa.

Peak Drinking:
Enjoyable on release or will develop complex, integrated flavours with six to eight years careful cellaring.
