Prepare to be blown away! An utterly jaw dropping, blockbuster Aussie Shiraz with all the trimmings (and then some!) that absolutely smokes any other Aussie red in and around the $25-30 price point! This one-off, very limited edition release was made with one aim in mind – to produce an Aussie red exclusively for the NZ market that over delivers for the money. Does it what – this has it in spades!
A collaboration between Matt Broomhead (winemaker at Three Dark Horses) and David Healy (wine importer and distributor) and in their own words – “We won’t bore you with the usual descriptives, you be the judge of this old school Shiraz. Drink with gusto!”
If you’ve tried any of the Batch Shiraz releases over the years – this is like a Batch Shiraz on steroids…
* From an excellent 2021 McLaren Vale vintage (Matt says is one of the best in the 21st century!)
* Single vineyard fruit from the Blewitt Springs sub region
* Hand picked fruit selected from just 12 rows
* From gnarly old vines planted in 1965
* Just 10 barrels selected for this wine
* Aged in expensive French oak (50% new) for 24 months
Scoring 5 Stars & 95/100 with local critic Sam Kim who said “The wine offers terrific fruit purity and power with gorgeous complexity, finishing impressively long and mouthfilling”.
A deep, dark, inky colour in the glass with an instant nose of a Shiraz of SERIOUS quality. A delicious big, powerful and rich style that’s jam packed with lashings of fruit and a long, luxurious finish. It’s an absolute treat for the old skool Aussie Shiraz lover.
Extremely limited in supply. Buy more than you need – you’ll be glad you did.
Damn, you're looking young for your age!
