The Range

These back vintage All Saints Estate wines are special wines that are carefully cellared deep inside the castle and released only when they are at their peak for your drinking pleasure.

The Wine

Hand picked fruit from our gnarled 85 year-old Shiraz vines. Steeped on its skins for three weeks before gentle pressing and 18 months in oak, 1/3 of which was new. More complex than brutish, rich but not heavy it is full of aromas of spiced plum, dried herbs and anise with ripe berry-fruit flavours and gorgeous fine tannins. With age, the wine has developed very well and is showing lovely sweet fruit with a soft and sumptuous palate. The aforementioned tannins are fine and subtle and give the wine a long satisfying dry finish.

Variety

Shiraz is Australia’s favourite red grape. It is most impressive in the Rhone Valley of France, where it makes wines so great, such as Hermitage, that we borrowed not only the variety, but the name as well! What we left to the French was the techniques they use in the vineyard and cellars. We are now rediscovering these old ways of doing things.

Winemaking

We are not seeking one of those ultra-ripe soupy Shiraz wines that are all the fashion in some circles. The fruit was picked ripe, but no more. Crushed and then given three weeks fermentation on skins. After gentle pressing the wine was aged for 18 months in French and American oak barriques (225L barrels).

Food Matching

Great Shiraz from this region has lovely rich fruit and a characteristic mineral, briny element. This makes it a great match for locally reared Rutherglen lamb, perhaps roasted and stuffed or studded with herbs, garlic and pancetta.

"Medium-bodied; quite elegant, and strictly counter-cultural to normal Northeast Victoria reds; perhaps slimmed down a little too much."
