No Fining. No Filtration
The Magnolia Shiraz is a single vineyard wine sourced from four small Shiraz blocks on our Magnolia Road Vineyard planted in 1965 (33%), 1996 (33%), 1896 (17%) and 2010 (17%). All four blocks were dry grown on deep alluvial granitic sands at an elevation ranging between 305 and 330 metres. The blocks are farmed organically and the wine was aged in French oak hogsheads for 15 months.
In the glass the Magnolia is dark purple and vibrant with aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, tobacco, earth & spice. Rich blackcurrant, toffee, cola & coal/mineral elements on the medium-full bodied palate. Mouth-watering, persistent and expressive the Magnolia drinks beautifully straight from opening and would age well through the next decade or more.
