The Wines

1960 Shiraz, first made 1998, then 2002, 2006, when not made fruit goes into the RSW Shiraz


full red robe. Compact, level bouquet, all together – plum fruit with a measured sweetness, almost like a La Mouline plus La Turque style. There are moments of pepper in its ripe red fruit, has a plump but refined core. Is gradually showing, is not a flash operator: this was bottled May 2009. There is a swirl of mineral and black fruit, with refined licorice on the finish, spearmint. It is tightly wrapped now, but there is a lot more to come. For now, signs of a rounded flourish on the finish are encouragement enough. “A good, mild vintage, not much irrigation required.” 14.5°. 2027-30 Oct 2009 A$132
