One of Australia's longest continuously operating purveyors of fine wine, Taylor Ferguson can trace their origins back to establishment circa 1898. Today, the team can draw fruit from a substantial catalogue of the finest vineyards from which to construct the most impressive wines. Shiraz from superior sites are selected on the basis of vibrant flavours and exemplary varietal expression. A slow, closely monitored fermentation to a mix of traditional methods and modern technology, together with a minimalist handling has produced a wine of conspicuous character and charm.
A deep plum colour with dark scarlet robes. Rich, clean aromas of blackberry, plum, spice and hints of American oak are carried through into the full bodied and complex palate, lengthening the finish. Barrel aging and a gentle vinification are evident in the fine tannins and balanced fruit characters that linger long on the palate.
