Richard Hamilton Centurion Shiraz 2018

Special Price $70.00 Regular Price $80.00
This is a brilliantly concentrated wine full of layers of flavour, texture and richness. Halliday’s ratings for the previous 10 vintages read thus … 97, 97, 95, 96, 97, 95, 96, 95, 96, 95… and this is as good as the very best vintage produced to date, perhaps a smidge better. Produced from a heritage plot of 120+ year old McLaren Vale vines, it will cellar 30 years plus.

This Shiraz is sourced from Hamilton’s own, tiny patch of 120+ year old vines. It’s gone from strength to strength over the years, with each successive vintage seeming to add to the power and majesty of the last… In 1893 the push for federation began in Corowa, Gold was discovered in Kalgoorlie and Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was alive and well hunting Kangaroos in Oz.
