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.

  • Tasting Notes

    Colour
    Mid to deep crimson red.

    Aroma
    Notes of salted plums, lavender, fresh blackberry, fresh jamón, wet earth and balsam.

    Palate
    Hits the palate with classic western Barossa generosity. Sweet and savoury notes intertwine and provide plenty of light and shade. Spicy plums, blue fruits and lavender dominate. Interesting notes of balsam and baking spices along with milk chocolate add depth and layers. Tannins are chewy in nature and run long on a very detailed and complex palate.

  • Wine Making

    Several small parcels from the Coach House vineyard were crushed and de-stemmed into open top fermenters and pressed at the desired times, with an average time on skins of 12 days.

    Maturation
    18 months in 35% new French oak Hogsheads with the remainder aged in 1-6 year old French oak hogsheads.

    Cellar Potential
    15+ years in ideal cellaring conditions.

  • Product Reviews
    93 Points - MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, May 2017
    Plush, with juicy, chocolate-covered cherry, plum compote and cumin accents set on a thick frame. Earl Grey tea and sarsaparilla notes crescendo on the finish, leaving a spicy detail lingering. Drink now through 2030.
