2014 Prophecy Shiraz

NEW RELEASE & WINE CLUB EXCLUSIVE

Made in a classic Clare Shiraz style, the wine exhibits dark cherries, savoury notes, hints of blueberries and firm natural acidity, all wrapped up in quality French oak char. This rewarding and complex wine is perfect for the connoiseur who likes to cellar wines to maximise their potential, but will also satisfy those who like to enjoy wines in the prime of their youth.
Appearance
Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Nose
A lifted and inviting nose, redolent of bright red fruits, dark cherries, savoury notes and a perfumed toasty French oak.
Palate
Opening up its account with sweet berry fruits, dark cherries and hints of dark cocoa, the wine builds and becomes more complex in the mouth. Its primary fruit fl avours, creamy oak and powdery tannins providing further roundness and palate persistence.
Cellaring
Potential of at least 12 - 15 years with careful cellaring.
Pair With
Moroccan lamb shanks with cous cous and mint yoghurt.
Alcohol
14.5%

Wine Review
Machine-harvested, open-fermented, cultured yeast, matured in French oak (30% new), for 18 months. The bouquet comes at you in a rush of black fruits and cedary oak, but any apprehension of excessive extract disappears instantly on the palate. While full-bodied, it is very well balanced.

Wine Review
Smooth and almost mataro-like, this supple and gentle Barossa shiraz has a faintly meaty perfume of white flowers, dark plums and blackberries, blueberries and fresh creamy vanilla oak. It's soft and ethereal, pliant and pruney, with a long, harmonious palate of restrained fruit, pliant tannins and a gentle acidity.

"He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the 'Killerman's Run' label all represent terrific bargains"
