Old Vine 2021


We were utterly spoilt for choice in 2021 for blocks going into ‘Old Vine’ Shiraz. At Wilton Hill Vineyards we were able to use what normally goes into The Brunette i.e. Blocks 9 & 10 (Planted 1965) as the base and then a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon from Moculta planted on deep red clay in 1980. We do not push the ripeness here and instead ferment with 10% whole bunch and a gentler extraction. Combined with only 20% new Burgundian barriques (the rest ex-white barriques) for 17 months, the wonderful richness and sweetness of ‘Old Vine’ fruit remains in focus. The 2021 has an extra layer of richness and texture — its flamboyance will surely blossom when approached by richer protein dishes.

Tasting Notes

"Deep, bright red-purple hue; intense spice aromas layered with graphite and ironstone; a touch of dark chocolate too. It's rich in the mouth, full-bodied and deep, with some alcohol warmth and a powerful, emphatic finish that rolls on and on. Deep core of black fruit-sweetness. Superb wine." 95 Pts
