The 1880 Shiraz 2014
Poonawatta The 1880 Shiraz is one of the last remaining vineyards of its era, and one of the oldest in Australia. Established in 1880, this small vineyard of weathered vines produces premium fruit with an exceptional heritage, where each vintage is a reflection of the season, underpinned by a foundation of quality and character formed over 140 years. The 1880 Shiraz is a living relic of Australia’s pioneering winemaking heritage.
“Rich, sweet, perfumed and voluptuous. The end result: delicious. Blue and black berries, coffee-cream oak, mint and florals. It’s deep, it’s soft, it invites you in and keeps you there. In short it’s a wine you’re happy to disappear into.” 96 Points. To 2035. Halliday Wine Companion.
“Red berry coulis – loads of cinnamon. So much flavour!, without the weight of heavy fruit or alcohol. Powerful, and composed. Intensely red-fruited and long-living. It’s a beautiful wine. 97/100.” The Real Review.
The 1880 Shiraz has been recognised as meeting the standards of excellence required to hold the Barossa Trust Mark. Origin | Integrity | Quality | Environment | Community.
