Shiraz is harvested in stages over the course of a fortnight, providing varying levels of sweetness and complexity for the finished wine. Grapes are vinified in open top fermenters and treated to a regimen of pumpovers twice daily. Several days after harvest, a portion of the free run juices are drained and fortified to arrest ferments and retain some natural sweetness. A combination of estate made brandy spirits, up to twenty years of age, are called upon to fortify the wine, achieving added complexity. Components are matured in well seasoned oak hogsheads for eighteen months, whereupon only the very best barrels are selected to be included in the final assemblage and bottling of this extra fine liqueur Shiraz.
Deep purple black colour. Enticing aromas of xmas cake and dark spiced berries, chocolates, perfume, marzipan and plum.

Essences of rancio and sweet tobacco leaf, marmalade and dried apricot, harmonious with moderate sweetness, balanced alcohol and velvety mouthfeel, a lingering finish completes a remarkable wine.
