2008 First Grid Shiraz2008 First Grid Shiraz

Premium Shiraz continues to be produced from this rich and fertile 2ha plot of well-established vines. Grown on the Barambah vineyard in the moderate climate of the South Burnett.

The 2008 vintage was picked early due to forecast wet conditions. A classy style of Shiraz, a little more aromatic than usual and picked with great complexity, the nose displays intense cedar, mocha and choc mint, all held together by the combination of 2 and 3 year old quality French oak and a touch of new oak. Aged on lees, this wine has a long coil of tannin and an opulent fullness on the palate. orth cellaring if you have the patience.
