The Cuttings Shiraz 2015
The Cuttings is produced from a small vineyard established from cuttings taken from the original 1880 vines. Planting started in the late ‘70s by taking cuttings from the 1880 vines and digging them into the stony soil. Each year a few more rows were added until the vineyard was completed in 1982. The Cuttings Shiraz delivers the structure and depth of its lineage; the result – an elegant cool climate Shiraz and a worthy protégé of The 1880.
Vibrant fruit, balancing both power and elegance, structured with fine grain tannins and beautifully integrated oak. Can be enjoyed now and cellared for 10 years or more.
“Dark-cored fruit with hoisin charm. This is fresh. Loads of red berry lift, curbed by sluicy oak. A wine that shows winemaking – balanced and full of energy. Classy.” The Real Review.
