Solid winter and spring rainfall followed by a warm and dry January and February led to a balanced vintage with good fruit intensity and structure.  The moments of heat were short and dispersed and there was some cool weather and rain in March that slowed down the red harvest and allowed for a long and balanced extended ripening.  Yields were lower than average resulting in high quality in terms of colour, fruit and intensity.

Sourced from selected parcels of Shiraz within the Bethany village that demonstrate great power, elegance and complexity, this Shiraz is an embodiment of the character and personality that is possible from this unique villlage in the Barossa Valley.  A bouquet that is redolent of black cherries, blackberries and clove spice leads to a palate that shows a supple and intense swathe of black fruits tempered by savoury spice elements and structured tannins that give great length and balance.
