Climbing Shiraz, Orange Australia, Vintage 2005
High Elevation Estate. Our estate vineyards climb up the slopes of Mt. Canobolas (elev. 4,650 feet) in the heart of the winegrowing district of Orange and thrive in brilliant sunshine. These ideal growing conditions naturally reduce yields and allow Philip Shaw, our world-renowned winemaker to craft small lots of intensely flavoured and wonderfully balanced wines of exceptional quality. Ripe and round, our estate-grown Shiraz is dense and dark with voluptuous hints of blackberry, subtle spiciness and outstanding balance. - Philip Shaw, Winemaker. Twice winner: International Winemaker of the Year. Alc 13.5% by vol. Wine of Australia.
