Mount Stapylton 2015 ‘Robert’ Shiraz
A powerful, abundant, warm vintage with great ripe fruit flavours, white pepper, tobacco leaf, bouquet garni, baked rhubarb and smoky charcuterie finely balanced by star anise, raspberry, blackcurrant and poached quince, with caramel and vanilla notes insinuating its 15 month maturation in 60:40 French and American oak barrels. A deep purple/crimson colour. The wine will develop gracefully for a decade or more.
13.5% Alc./Vol. Winemaker, Don McRae.

Mount Stapylton 2011 ‘Shirley’ Shiraz
A gracious, refined and amazing cooler vintage full of complex flavours , white pepper, blood plum, blueberry, mulberry; with complex minerality, savoury charcuterie, black olive, cigar box notes and silky tannins that would reward careful aging for more than 15 years.
This was a cool vintage for us and this wine has some beautiful savoury flavours.
