A high quality, blended Shiraz sourced from three vineyards across the Clare Valley and named after my Great Grandfather, Tom Duke’s, orchard property that is adjacent to the Woodvale vineyard. A location steeped in family history for me and a wine very worthy in having that name bestowed upon it. Inky crimson red in colour with dark fruits, riper plum and chocolate notes wrapped up in a veneer of quality French oak and gentle tannins. Its textural qualities and long finish a legacy of its 10 days fermenting on skins, its traditional basket pressing, 18 months ageing in a blend of new and more seasoned small oak casks. Bottling the wine un-fined and un-filtered further increasing the wines appeal. Cellaring potential of at least another 12 – 15 years.
