Exclusive Members Edition
The Black Dog Shiraz epitomises Shiraz from the Ferguson Valley in Western Australia.
An expression of the soil and the climate, but also capturing the hard work and attention to detail of our vineyard cohort.
A wine of depth and intrigue, a wine that tells the story of the vintage, at every swirl revealing another aspect of the season.
Rich, dense and beguiling, enjoy with wholesome food and good friends.
Collectors edition, batch numbered and signed by the winemaker!
Deep bouquet, dried plums, earthy beetroot and scented spice.
Powerful and complex, black plum fruit intermingled with complex tertiary characters of dried nuts, spice and chocolate derived from ageing.
The fruit is sourced from a gravel clay block, north east facing, backing on to the Wellington Forest, painfully low yields, but producing a wine of intense varietal character.
100% barrel matured in new (25%) and older french hogsheads.
A reasonably dry and warm end to 2014 was followed by equally dry conditions in January and February of 2015, but with a little more heat, however not the spikes that can be common in the early months of the year.
A light mid March rain event gave the red varieties some respite and a drink prior to harvest.
