Stud Farm Road Shiraz 2018

Out of Stock

The Heathcote region has long been recognized as one of Australia’s pre-eminent locations for ultra premium Shiraz and what sets it apart is the idyllic continental climate and the famous strip of 600 million year old deep red Cambrian soil. These ancient soils impart typically identifiable characteristics of ripe full-flavoured wines, deep purple/black in colour with rich and velvety berry fruit flavours into this wine.

All the indicators of an age worthy shiraz with enough freshness and sweet fruit to be ready to go now, definitely improved over a number of hours in a decanter.
