Winemaker’s Series Shiraz 2018
$25.001 Critic Note
Even our winemakers have favourites. This single vineyard Shiraz from Heathcote has been selected for this special range because it’s a Shiraz with a flavour quite unique. This powerful and generous wine has rich dark berry flavours, plenty of spice and long, fine tannins for a smooth finish.
