Limited stock.

Our tightly held VSV (or very special vineyard) wines are only made in exceptional years when a single site delivers the ultimate harmony of varietal and region.

Ebenezer, in the north west of the Barossa is home to the Schrapel family who are 6th generation guardians of a very special patch of old vine Shiraz planted by their forebears in 1885. At over 300 metres above sea level, this 4 acre block is home to extremely low yielding, gnarled and twisted vines with their roots deep in the Ebenezer soils.

This is a rare Shiraz from the Schrapel family's 1885 vineyard. Only 600 cases produced.

The colour is deep red with a black centre.

The bouquet shows dark cherry and chocolate which leads to a stylish palate with soft tannins and great length of flavour.

A delicious accompaniment for rare beef, game dishes of wild duck, hare and venison, hearty casseroles and a good aged cheddar.
