Profile

This is gracefully rich and enticing on the nose showing blackberry, rich floral, olive and cedary oak characters, followed by an impressively concentrated palate delivering refined texture and chalky tannins. Multi-layered and gorgeously complex with superb structure and presence. 

Situated at just over 500m in altitude, the vines of The Mayors Vineyard, in the North East of the Clare Valley provide the fruit for this single vineyard wine. The 54 year old vines were hand harvested and individual blocks kept separate through vinification. The vineyards soils of red loam are dotted with slate and have long produced Shiraz displaying a wonderful balance between savoury aspects and fruit purity.

Critic awards

This 2020 The Mayors Vineyard Shiraz is an exceptionally savoury, layered Shirqz with red dirt, hung deli meat, some oolong tea and salted mulberries at the fore. This is wonderful wine, at the beginning of its life.

— 95 points, Wine Orbit

Blackberries, crushed stone, slate and bark aromas and flavors. It’s full and flavorful with layers of fruit and polished tannins. Serious shiraz. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
