Lady's Lane Vineyard 2012

Tournon by M. Chapoutier

Ladys Pass is a historical location in Heathcote, where stage coaches used to pass over the Mount Camel Range. Planted in 2002, the Lady's Lane Vineyard is 4 hectares of Shiraz, culitvated on nearly 500 million year old Cambrian soils. The wine has a very fresh nose with berry and spice characters complemented by a gentle tannic structure with a deep ruby color and a nose redolent of currants, leather, and crushed berries, this is a powerful and generous wine that is able to express itself with delicacy thanks to the gentle tannic structure.

Tasting Notes

This Shiraz shows a deep garnet appearance with aromas of redcurrant, leather, red crushed berries with hints of toffee. The wine is powerful and generous, expressing itself with delicacy. Intense flavors of ripe fruits and spices combine to a fine acidity on the palate and a long, expressive finish.
