This Shiraz is crafted from 60-year old vines in Greenock sub district of the Barossa Valley. The old vines were to be uprooted by the growers due to the lack of yields and the fact that other companies were reluctant to pay for those excellent, yet low yielding vines. After repeated requests by Jaysen and Dan, the vineyard was 'saved' at the eleventh hour resulting in this excellent wine as well as the very appropriate name.

Firm and focused, with dense tannins around a core of wild berry, licorice and mineral flavors. Finishes harmoniously, lasting well. Needs time to become more expressive. Shiraz. Best after 2009. 1,200 cases made.
