Alcohol Volume



Shiraz maturation was for 16 months in used French oak Puncheons. The Pinot Noir was matured for the same duration, again in used French oak Hogsheads.


Screw Cap


Pinot Noir has been blended with Shiraz in the Hunter Valley for decades by some of its top producers. There is now a resurgence in the blend with many labels again available.

Vintage Notes

The fourth consecutive drought vintage, 2020 followed on from the magnificent 2017, 2018 and 2019 vintages. Heavily reduced yields, down by 60%, are made up for by the outstanding quality.

Vineyard Notes

Shiraz and Pinot Noir, both from the Kindred family’s, ‘Lochleven’ Estate which was planted in 1973. The vineyard is located, on the corner of Deasys and McDonalds Roads in Pokolbin.


Both parcels of grapes were hand-picked and fermented separately in open vats and plunged twice daily. Prior to bottling in October 2021, both parcels were blended together. The ratio is 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

A light Pinot dominant strawberry colour. Red berries dominate the nose with strong strawberry aromas in a light—medium bodied frame. The palate is pure and balanced, with the Pinot taking centre stage. Excellent length of flavour.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Medium term (up to 10 years).

Food Matches

Duck & lean Beef.

Vegan Friendly
