Tasting Notes

colour

A vibrant purple with hints of raspberry.

aroma

Vibrant warm spice aromas leap from the glass with cinnamon and star anise coming to the fore.

palate

Fresh and modern, the palate is powder fine with the most elegant of tannin structure. Succulent red cherries and raspberry flavours are tied together with an almost ethereal minerality and fresh acidity coursing through the wine.

cellaring

Drink now and enjoy over the next two to three years.

Technical

vintage

The 2022 season saw due a continuation of the La Nina weather patterns, with cooler weather and lots of rain prior to the growing season providing healthy vine growth. Cooler vintage temperatures produced fruit with vibrant natural acidity and more refined, delicate characteristics. Frost early on in the season caused some lower yields, however the resulting fruit shows deliciously concentrated flavour.

winemaking

An exciting new school wine from Dalwhinnie that celebrates our amazing original vineyard high in the Pyrenees. It’s a wine that celebrates the beauty of single vineyard wines and simplistic, hands-off winemaking.

The fruit for this wine was handpicked and wild fermented (40% whole bunch) in a single 1.5T fermenter without cooling control. Fruit was pressed after 12 days on skins to older, large format oak. Maturation for 12 months on gross less prior to bottling.

Reviews

Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate 2024

The 2022 LDR Shiraz is impossibly bright, spicy and pert. The texture is almost frisky! The 75% whole bunch sits well within this wine; the fruit holds it with aplomb. Matured in older puncheons and in barrel for only nine months, this is fresh and exciting, with a splay of exotic spice and mountain herbs. It's a beautiful, supple and charming wine.

James Suckling, November 2023

Ripe blackberries and plums with blue flowers, dried orange peel and sweet spices with peppery undertones. Medium- to full-bodied with fine tannins that have a dusty texture and mineral crunchiness. Vivid and berry-soaked character with a juicy, savory finish.
