Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2016

Special Price $15.00 Regular Price $25.00
It’s nice to get your hands on a quality, cellared Shiraz at a decent price. This robust and black fruited Shiraz is hitting its straps now at 5 years of age and still has a good few more years in it. There’s plenty of black and blue fruit, spice and cedary oak finished with plenty of fine tannins.

Scott and Cheryl Longbottom first planted vines in Padthaway in the early 90’s … these vines are now heading towards 30 years of age and producing balanced crops with excellent fruit intensity. Initially they found a ready market for their high-quality grapes, selling to other producers. These days they keep the best 15% of this fruit for themselves. They have also hired winemaking gun Renae Hirsch who also makes the superb wines of Chalk Hill and Alpha Crucis in McLaren Vale.
