2019 Brooks Road Shiraz *

Named for the street on which the vineyard is located, Brooks Road Shiraz exhibits the compelling single site character of the vineyard. It marries red, blue and black fruit aromas with perfumed and savoury elements and captures the full flavour of Shiraz with deeply ripe plum and blackberry fruits. The powerful and defined tannins are balanced with even-paced acid structure which accentuates length of flavour and delivers a sense of sustained purity on the palate.

Vintage & Wine Notes

2019 began with a very dry winter and spring, followed by record-breaking heat and dry conditions throughout the summer. Conditions like these are challenging for shoot growth, however the silver lining is a low risk of vine disease. The warm growing season resulted in a condensed harvest with low yields. The fruit showed great concentration of flavour with marked acidity and freshness. The Shiraz blocks averaged 6.5 tonnes per hectare. The 2019 Brooks Road Shiraz showcases notes of bramble, blackberry, cassis, and espresso bean on the nose followed by blueberry, spice, and hints of minerality on the palate.
