2013 Marananga Shiraz
The low yielding old vines and the shallow red brown earths of our Marananga vineyard, provide the backbone and complexity for this elegant Barossa Shiraz, finessed with a touch of American oak.
It has the concentration and fruit definition to complement robust red meats - even hare if you're game.
Deep, dense, plum red.
Complex aromas, cashews and dark berries.
Great balance, a strong vintage with powerful flavours, silky mid-palate and a wonderful tannin length. This wine gets better every time I taste it, nuts, vanilla, plums and a rich dark chocolate flavour. This wine needed more time in oak to bring it together, I was tempted to introduce more new oak because of the fruit intensity but I am pleased now that I resisted.
Every so often our Marananga vineyard is blessed with a season where the winemaking stars align.
A year for perfect fruit maturation, the Lepus is the pick of the crop from the outstanding 2013 vintage.
The 2013 Ironscraper is a wine that suits its name. Deep crimson in colour its special personality is its length and grip – helped along with an almost imperceptible touch of Barossa Cabernet.
A complex and elegant Marananga Shiraz, finessed with a touch of American Oak.
With the concentration and fruit definition to complement robust red meats - even hare if you’re game!
Layered Mediterranean freshness and fruit flavours - quinces and pomegranates and cherries.
A stylish, medium bodied red, brilliant with succulent charcoal grilled quail or a lazy afternoon Tapas.
