Shiraz from bush vines planted in 1893 (Central) and the 1919 Eastern vineyard.
The Shiraz wines from Wendouree don’t appeal to me as much as the Cabernets and Malbec, but I’d have to concede that this straight Shiraz in 2015 is absolutely smoking. Red fruits and roses, foresty perfume, a little hazelnut and cedar, even a touch of liquorice. Medium bodied, very fine and clean, but so concentrated and deep, with a mass of fine silty tannin, pure acidity, and incredible length. Laser-like focus here, with no lack of finesse. Great wine. Drink 2025-2045.
