The perfect celebration wine: a great party starter and wonderful for a lazy Sunday Brunch. Try with egg and bacon pie! Delicious with roast turkey, quail and glazed ham, or with a rich chocolate cake!

The colour is dark cherry red. The nose has lashings of beautiful soft chocolate and dark plums. Having spent 2 years on yeast lees it has a persistent fine bead, and is superbly developed, showing richness, softness and a delicious yeast complexity.

This was named The Black Queen in honour of the most hauntingly famous Black Queen of all, The Queen of Sheba, who describes herself in the book of Solomon "I am black, (and) comely." There can be no better description of this wine. A truely indulgent pleasure.

The second of 3 consecutive great vintages for reds, highly rated by the winemakers and producing wines of great depth, flavour and richness.

Selected from a small number of premium Barossa Shiraz vineyards, including, to their delight, a parcel of fruit from Peter and Margaret Lehmann's Stonewell Hill vineyard.

Fermented on skins for 7 - 10 days, pressed, clarified and then matured for 12 months in older French oak hogsheads. The base wine was then bottle-fermented and aged on its yeast lees for 2 years.
