This 2021 Dreams of Gold Shiraz is delicious. Detailed and fresh, this is spicy and layered with vibrant berries and grippy tannins. Really pleasurable.

Aromas of crushed black fruit, graphite and black licorice. Medium- to full-bodied with silky tannins. Savory with chocolate character coating the plummy black fruit. A little saline as well. Drink now.
Handpicked early morning, the 23rd of March, Dreams of Gold comes from vines planted in 1997 and 2013. The wine has been made in a 4 tonne fermenter and stayed on skin for 18 days before being pressed in a small basket press.
Winemaker Notes: The latest addition to the Estate comes from the youngest blocks of the property planted in 2013 and is complemented with the 1997 shiraz. Handpicked for the first time in 2020, Dreams of Gold is a bright purple, vivid colour. It exhibits vibrant red fruits with minty eucalypt and winter greens on the nose. These aromatics pass through on the palate and complement the soft supple tannins. This is a perfect example of Eden Valley Shiraz, seductive and elegant with great balance and length. It’s surprisingly very approachable and the bottle doesn’t last long around the table. 8,400 bottles made.
