Shiraz Nagambie Victoria
Outstanding Langtons Classification. From one of the most famous vineyards in the world, a half hectare of ungrafted, prephylloxera plantings, amongst the oldest productive Shiraz vines to be found anywhere. Internationally renowned for its eloquence as well as its historic significance, 1860 Vines Shiraz is treated to an old world vinification in a collection of hundred years old, oak fermentation vats. 1860 is crafted to remain true to its ancient heritage, the smells and flavours of an old fashioned wine, within a structure of enduring elegance and timeless refinement.
Bright, deep scarlet. Violets, blackberries and spice, a background of savoury herbaceousness, espresso and chocolate oak. A remarkably elegant palate structure, lithe, fragrant and clean, its gravelly tannins and biscuit carob oak in support of savoury fruit flavours, mulberries and anise plum, exquisitely evolved at five years of age, an immeasurably long finish.
