After establishing some Cabernet Sauvignon blocks on Bundalong we were advised by a major Coonawarra wine company that some of their best Shiraz came off country with a soil profile and aspect like ours. So in the mid 1990's we expanded our plantings to include some Shiraz blocks.

Our objective has always been to produce premium wines from top quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz fruit rather than grow for quantity. So we are delighted the vines have settled down and are showing some really superior characteristics. After 25 years in the industry we achieved a milestone with some of our blocks being graded in the top 5% of grapes purchased by major grape purchasers in the Coonawarra.

From time to time we select special parcels of fruit for the Bundalong label. 2008, 2012 and 2014 have been good years in the Coonawarra and so we selected premium fruit and produced a limited quantity of Shiraz in these vintages.

2014 is our current single vineyard Coonawarra Shiraz vintage. It is a medium bodied elegant wine which shows plum skin, black pepper and spicy characters typical of the Coonawarra.

The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 18 months and bottled in a premium punted claret bottle.

The 2014 Shiraz was made by Peter Bissell, Chief Winemaker at Balnaves of Coonawarra .

Given the limited supply and premium nature of the 2014 wine we reserve the right to limit the number of cases ordered.
