With the exception of the 2011 vintage, each year since 1997 we have released the iconic Oracle Shiraz. Crafted from old vine fruit grown along the Golden Hillside in Leasingham, it continues to display the opulence, regional character and varietal power the valley is so renown for.
Crafted from old vine fruit grown along the golden hillside in Leasingham, it continues to display the opulence, regional character and varietal power the valley is so renown for.
A standout vintage, 2012 has been compared very closely with the famous 2002 vintage, with the
ripening and harvest conditions consisting of warm days, cool nights with minimal rainfall and
no disease pressure what so ever; perfect ingredients in the production of long lived, flavoursome Shiraz wines.
2014 was a cooler and more protracted vintage in the Clare Valley, allowing the Shiraz blocks along the west face of the Golden Hillside to ripen more slowly, bringing all parcels to their very optimum levels of maturity.
Low yielding Shiraz parcels were chosen across our Golden Hillside vineyards, vinfied separately using time honoured traditional techniques, then aged for 18 months in a selection of new and one year old French oak hogsheads. Bottling occurred without any fining or filtration.
Colour: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Aroma: Richly hedonistic, the nose jumps out of the glass, vigorously capturing the alluring aromas of dark chocolate, coal tar, exotic spices and complimentary French oak char.
Palate: A wine of tremendous concentration, complexity and understated elegance, the palate brims with riper plums fruits, dark chocolate and tar nicely paired with classy French oak and polished tannins that carry over in the mouth well after the wine has been consumed. A wine made for the ages.
Potential of at least 12 - 15 years with careful cellaring.

- Open fermentation with hand pumpovers for 8-9 days. Basket pressed to 50% new French hogsheads for 20 months. Slightly unexpected aromas greet you here, with blackcurrant and truffle more immediately obvious than the typically ripe regional fruit characters which sit behind. Dense rather than brawny on the palate, with a juicy quality and a fresh, tangy feel about the tannin. Oak seems to kick in on the finish. Will be interesting to follow its development.

- Rich, ripe, intense cherry stone, sweet spices, light toast, dry blueberry and meaty hints, lots of very impressive forward dark fruit on the palate with hints of mocha, very fine tannin and wonderful palate length.
