Background

Vineyard Notes
Fruit for this wine is from the mature ‘Lochleven’ Estate vineyard, planted in 1973 and located in Pokolbin.
Winemaking
Although still very much in drought, the 2018 vintage had milder temperatures than 2017 resulting in more even ripening. An excellent Shiraz vintage, the wines made have exceptional colour, are full flavoured and have beautiful structure.
Tasting Notes
A lovely deep ruby red colour. Aromas of dark berries, black cherries, plums and jam. The French oak is unobtrusive and the tannins are silky and fine. An impressive length of flavour for an entry level wine.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Medium to long term.
Food Matches
Beef, lamb and cheese based cuisine.
