The 1890s brought boom years to the nascent Aussie wine industry, as connoisseurs throughout Europe and the Empire were introduced to the Dionysian delights of new world Claret by Tyrrell, St Huberts and Wirra Wirra. An enterprising family of Scots took heed of the times to plant grapevines on a uniquely auspicious block in Valley Clare, they called it St Andrew and produced forty vintages of the most sensational quality Claret until the 1930s. The Taylor family acquired the fallow farm in 1995 and brought St Andrew's vines back to life. The treasured block endures as home to the flagship range of Taylor wines, one of the most distinguished vineyards in all Australia.

Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter Lehmann, Saltram and Kaiser Stuhl.

Kirrihill work closely with the most dedicated Clare Valley growers to ensure the fruit meets the standards required to make the highest quality wine. Parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters, while being treated to regular pumpovers, followed by a course of drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannin from skins. The batches are pressed off into a selection of French and American oak for malolactic and ten months maturation, softening the tannins and enhancing complexity. Parcels are then assembled into the finished wine, the aim being to achieve a balance of terroir, while buiding structure and achieving true elegance.
A vibrant deep red colour. Classic Clare Cabernet characters of blackcurrant and crushed violet on the nose, supported by enticing cedary notes, black bean and hints of hoi sin sauce. The palate is chock full of plum, mulberry and dark cherry. A rich, full bodied wine whose fruit characters are balanced by delicious chocolate oak, velvety tannins and a long, satisfying finish.
