Fruit for this wine is sourced from two blocks of mature Shiraz vines grown on the rich red soils at the northern end of Coonawarra, approximately six kilometres north of the Coonawarra Store.
The dry nature of this area produces low-yielding vines where the fruit is highly concentrated in flavour, resulting in vibrant and elegant styles of wines.
2017 TERRA ROSSA SHIRAZ REVIEWS
93 POINTS - STEVEN CREBER, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
Grown on Tim Kidman's ‘old vine block'. Open-fermented, 12 months in 25% new and 75% third-fill French oak. Attractive raspberry fruit and a feeling of freshness through this wine. It flows easily along the palate, supple and relatively soft with good length of flavour. Seems to be built more around acidity than tannin which enhances its drinkability. No hurry though.
91 POINTS - JAMES SUCKLING
A rich a flavorful shiraz with dried-berry, mint and spearmint undertones. Some dried meat, too. Full body. Round tannins. Drink now.
