2012 De La Roche
The De La Roche vineyard is possibly unique in this country being a close-planted Shiraz vineyard. And for added interest, the vineyard has been planted with cuttings originating from the pedigree vineyards of Bests and Tahbilk. Dry-grown and organically managed, the low yielding vines are already outperforming other vineyards that are much older, displaying exceptional fruit flavours and some very exciting results. Approximately 250 cases produced.

Bright colour of medium depth, it has a vibrant display of black and red cherry fruit, the medium-bodied palate supple and long, the finish speaking of fine tannins and quality oak. 95 points.

Second release ex new close-planted shiraz vineyard (10000 vines per hectare), yielding 500 gms per vine. A super-elegant, highly fragrant spice, pepper, black cherry and blackberry compote that is deceptively light on its feet; fine but distinctly savoury tannins provide complexity and structure. 96 pts.
