The Amelia Park Reserve Shiraz of 2018 has a lifted bouquet of mulberries, licorice and black cherry. The palate is soft with spiced plum and velvety tannins. The line and length excellent. Aged in French oak for eighteen months, this wine offers excellent cellaring potential.

We source a single vineyard in the Frankland River Region for this wine. This region is perfectly suited to producing many red and white varieties due to its continental climate combined with low vigour and moderate ripening conditions. We have chosen this particular vineyard for its ability to produce typical Frankland River Shiraz, which as a result of being a cool climate, is intense in colour with ripe flavours yet is elegant in style and structure.

As with every vintage, challenges arise from mother nature. Testing weather conditions during the ripening period were overcome with lots of hard work and attention in the vineyards to ensure pristine fruit was delivered to the winery. A slow start to vintage, 3-4 weeks later than the previous few years, has meant a later finish which finally ended for us the first week of May. The slow and extended ripening period has delivered beautifully balances wines, with great natural acidity and elegance.

From the exceptional 2018 vintage springs this aromatic, brooding, concentrated and complex shiraz from one of WA's great shiraz regions. Salted mulberry, raspberry, blackberry and licorice, layered with red licorice, bitter cocoa, star anise and that regional stamp of ferrous/red dirt/earth. Ripe acidity weaves in and out of the long finish. This will bring pleasure now, and well into the future.
