2019 Ahrens' Creek Ancestor Vine Shiraz


This very old Shiraz vineyard was planted in the 1870s and is a true natural wonder. The vineyard has been substantially overhauled, increasing vine health and yields. Our fiest vintage was 2014 which received 96 points from James Halliday. The wine shows magnificent fruit and intensity and subtle characteristics of a top-line Barossa Shiraz.
