Emetior Shiraz

Origin: Australia

In the 1800s Goolwa was the most important river port in South Australia linked by rail to Port Elliot, where sailing ships unloaded ballast stone to refill their holds with wool and grain for their return trip to England.
Buildings on Ballast Stone Estate Vineyards are made from this stone.

Big, bold & beautiful. These 80 year old McLaren Vale vines produce a small parcel of exceptional fruit, the quality of which stands out in some vintages, depending on the growing season. It is only in these years that we bottle a small run of this wine.

Sourced from vineyards over 65 years old and matured in American and French oak hogsheads for 30 months.

Grape Variety

Syrah/Shiraz 100%

Alcohol by Volume

Winemaker's Notes

This shiraz begins with smokey vanillin oak and goes through the spectrum of chocolate, coconut, violets, peppers and prune, to a full, rounded palate and finishes with elegantly balanced tannins.
