"Pretty clove and pepper nose with a rich bramble fruit taste. The palate is full-bodied, rich and structured, the acidity on point. Long, toasty finish."


- Decanter World Wine Awards 2019


"Deep garnet in colour with an alluring mix of red-cherry fruits, bay-leaf and whitepepper spice aromas. A concentrated, fleshy and well structured palate that has excellent focus and precision. From an outstanding vintage for old vine Shiraz, this wine will age gracefully for many years to come.


To qualify for the Remus blend the vineyards need to be over 50 years of age and managed sustainably. The blend is from three Eden Valley sites: 60+ year old vineyard: Flaxman Valley sub-region; 60+ year old vineyard: Keyneton sub-region; and Eden Valley 80+ year old vineyard from Central Eden Valley sub-region."


Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. Selected fermenters had up to 25% whole-bunch clusters added to the destemmed berries. Hand plunged daily allowed for a gentle extraction and helped to prolong the fermentation. After an extended period on skins the ferments were pressed to 45% new French oak hogsheads. Matured and not racked throughout the 18-month oak-maturation period provided for palate weight and texture. Prior to bottling, the wine was naturally clarified and bottled without filtration."
