Sevenhill Brother John May Reserve Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare South Australia
Brother John May planted a block of low yielding Shiraz vines during his stewardship of Sevenhill Cellars in the 1970s, naming his beloved parcel Ignatious, after the builder of a historic shrine which overlooks the precious patch. Grapes are crushed into an ancient five tonnes, open slate fermenter, gently plunged for up to a fortnight and basket pressed into the luxury of completely new French oak for two years maturation. Its opaque density, opulent structure and polished, seamless tannins define John May as Clare Valley's tour de force.
