2021 The Road Block Shiraz (2021)


This vineyard is distinctive and charismatic due to its expressive geology and unique meso-climate.

Product Description

A muscular, athletic red that ripples with authority of ripe black and red berries, violet notes, bacon bone, clove-cedar wood seasoning and black pepper



Description: Very deep red-purple colour; reserved bouquet of latent earthy spices; breathed to show plush chocolate and dark plum fruit character, while the palate is full-bodied and firm with lashings of drying tannins and an authoritative finish. Deep-buried black fruits with appealing sweetness at its heart: it needs more time to unlock its full potential and promises a big future.

Title: Wine Pilot

Description: Super vintage, this, and it’s contributed to the delightfully perfume nose with its lift of violets and other florals. Beautifully engaging aroma from the start with dark plummy fruits, a little ironstone and subtle sage bush dried herbs in the background. The palate is concentrated but delivers with a subtle medium body that is so captivating. Fine grained tannin integration and the oak is neatly weighted to sit snuggly with the fruit. Perfectly balanced and poised.
