The Lodge Hill Shiraz vineyard, on the Clare Valley's eastern ranges, has soils of rich, chocolatey loam over almost vertical sheets of rock. The cracks between the rock have filled with soil, providing passage for the vine roots and free drainage - the ideal environment for low-yielding Shiraz vines.
Sight: This wine is a deep red with a bright magenta hue.
Aromas: Vibrant aromatics of red and black berry fruits, a lift of violet florals, clove spice, and mixed garden herbs.
How it tastes: The palate is dominated by a lively burst of berry fruits, which are well framed by fine, powdery tannins. Juicy plum and blackberry flavors persist through the finish, with sweet spice to close.
