Made from rich, red berries sourced from a unique easterly-facing single vineyard in Kimbolton, our 2018 Matilda Reserve Shiraz is one of our boldest Reserves yet.

Harvested by hand in early March, the wine was aged in seasoned French barriques. Following a second racking in late 2019, the wine was transferred to one new French and two one-year-old American barriques for an additional 5 months, enhancing the vanilla-spice characteristics.

The wine was bottled on 14 May 2020. Some sediment remains in bottle as the wine was not fined or filtered.

Bottled with cork and meticulously hand labelled, this full-flavoured, fruit driven Shiraz has a spicey, white pepper lingering finish.
