The formula has served to produce profound efforts which are recognized as some of Australia's most distinguished wines. Parcels of Shiraz on old dry grown vineyards at Gomersal and Kalimna, Rowland Flat, Ebenezer and Marananga are selected for their quality and individual charm, separately vinified and matured up to two years in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barriques, followed by assemblage and bottling without fining or filtration.

Brooding and densely packed, this majestic wine continues to slowly unravel its extravagant riches.
