This wine comes from a single block selection from the oldest Shiraz vines in our Camelback vineyard. We have long been convinced that the Block Two produces the best quality Shiraz fruit we have. The Block 2 Shiraz is dark in colour, there are blackberries and violets on the nose. Layers of intense dark berry fruit and spice unfold on the palate, mingled with subtle tannins and a touch of earthiness. French oak enhances the richness of the fruit and adds complexity. Block Two is a wine with structure, length, and fine tannins. It will continue to improve over the next 5 or more years.
The Shiraz, estate grown from mature vines, is incredibly voluptuous, rich and dense. The flavour takes in black cherry, plum, prune, blackberry, bitter chocolate and anise/spice. Redesdale Estate is well recognized for this style of Shiraz.
