Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»

Taylors St Andrews Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
St Andrew is the flagship of ultra premium editions by Taylor, a benchmark Clare Valley effort, vinified from Shiraz grown to a distinguished old site. It represents the very best from the Taylor family estate and continues the St Andrews legacy of transcendent, first growth Australian wine, a tradition which dates back to the inaugural vintage of 1892. A true labour of love, painstakingly hand crafted from grapes grown to a historic vineyard. A generously proportioned yet elegant wine, Clare Valley Shiraz at its stellar finest.

From the eminent St Andrews Block A30, Old Lands Block S50, 40 and 80, traditional 1654 clones of Shiraz. Grapes are moved a short distance to the winery where they are gently de-stemmed to retain integrity and minimise any maceration or extraction of harsh tannins. Fruit is transferred to headless barrels and inoculated with a specialist strain of Shiraz yeast. Ferments are hand plunged twice daily to aid gentle extraction before being pressed and returned to barrel for malolactic. Upon completion, the component wines are racked off lees, assembled and filled to a selection of water bent American oak barrels for eighteen months maturation prior to filtration.
Brick red colour with deep crimson heart, already showing signs of development. A brooding, savoury complex yet thoroughly enticing aroma. Mouth watering wafts of chocolate, mocha, toffee and cream intertwine with plum, aniseed and rich berry fruit, great elegance and length. The palate is a mouthful of round completeness. Fruit flavours and oak weight are in absolute balance bringing harmony, grace and a pleasurable warmth to the palate from start to finish.
