2017 Fifteen Shiraz – 3 pack

Elite Single Vineyards

Back to All

$1,050 Per 3-Pack

Only 8 left in stock

3 x 750ml

A single vineyard expression of Shiraz from a vineyard that turned 100 years old in 2015, located on the western ridge of the famous Barossa Valley. Originally planted by the Helbig family in 1915, the vineyard became a very sought after parcel for the Barossa’s leading winemakers. Luckily for the Ashmead family, we were able to acquire this vineyard in late 2010, forever ending the race to get this amazing fruit.

Only 1428 bottles produced, with each bottle individually number and signed by Cameron and Allister Ashmead.

Winemakers Comments

Unlike any other wine in our range, this is a wine of immense proportion and is super-rich, dark and brooding. It is already a wine of complexity and has remarkable balance and structure that underpin the full-bodied berry, mocha, spice and cedar flavours and is certain to cellar well into the long term.

It's full-bodied, concentrated and rich, densely packed with layers of slowly unfolding flavor, notes of cracked pepper and licorice and hints of mocha on the long finish.
