2021 Ironstone Shiraz

Our Ironstone Shiraz only made in exceptional years, is a selection of our very best barrels of Geelong Shiraz.

The 2021 vintage is an alluring deep and inky purple in the glass. On the nose, it is complex and intense, the layers of deep red and black fruits followed by lavender, white pepper, fresh tobacco, allspice, and savoury turned earth.

Lush on the palate, with mouth-filling depth and power, the fabulous intensity has definite richness while maintaining its cool-climate elegance, all of the complexity the nose offers, echoes with a persistently long finish.

This really shows off the powerful and premium style Geelong Shiraz aspires to.

"This is superb. It’s silken, pure, savoury and sweet; it has power but it also has modesty; it has all the carry in the world on the finish. It tastes of smoked meat and black cherry, potpourri, black pepper, boysenberries and plums. It’s characterised by its meat, pepper, roasted nut and floral characters but the fruit itself is gorgeously ripe and satisfying. In short, this is a Geelong shiraz to write home about." 96 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (Posted on 04 February 2024)
