Story: Acknowledging the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, this Shiraz is named Over the Top to proudly declare our aim to make the finest wine we possibly can.
Vintage: The 2016 vintage was in general very mild with low rainfall. The lack of rain looked like it would result in a quick harvest, but a big downpour in early February made sure the vintage was more evenly spread out. The yields were up on the couple of previous years and the quality is looking great.
Nose: The nose offers complex aromas of apricots, plums, pretty floral notes and hints of cloves.
Palate: The palate is dense and concentrated with wild strawberries and plums, complemented by velvety tannins.
Pairing: Go retro and bring out the carpet bag steak! For you younger ones, that’s a scotch fillet steak stuffed with oysters and wrapped in bacon.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2028
Winemaker: Shane Harris
