Fermented and matured in 60% new French oak for 18 months prior to bottling, this excellent Shiraz has rich plum and fruitcake aromas, with nuances of blueberry fruits and hints of violets, lifted savoury spice and a touch of cured meat. Full bodied with integrated oak spice, exceptional length and velvety tannins.
95 Points - James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Finished fermentation in and matured in French oak (60% new) for 18 months. The excellent crimson colour heralds a medium-bodied wine that ticks all the boxes of a cool-grown Shiraz that has made light of the new oak; the fragrant bouquet of spicy, peppery black cherry is at one with the beautifully fine and detailed palate, the finish exceptionally long.
The Kakaba Reserve wines represent the pinnacle of our Adelaide Hills winemaking.
Small parcels of wine, made from the highest quality grapes, nurtured in the vineyard and then very carefully treated in the winery, with minimal winemaking intervention and sensible use of quality French oak.
Their aim is to make elegant wines which express the terroir of the vineyard and exhibit purity and vibrancy of fruit.
Perfect with lamb shanks.
