As with previous vintages of this outstanding wine, the 2017 ‘Kathleen’ Shiraz exhibits a deep velvety red colour and vibrant blackberry flavours.  These flavours are followed by a long blackcurrant liqueur (cassis) finish, accompanied by vanilla and other complexities.  Awarded bronze in the 2018 Victorian Wine Show last November after only a few months in bottle we are confident that this wine will win silver or gold when it is re-entered in the 2019 Victoria Wine Show next November.
This is a fresh, smooth, fruity wine with great length on the palate and is ready to drink now.  It will continue to improve for many years to come and will richly reward cellaring.
To mark the new release, the 2017 ‘Kathleen’ will be available for $220 a case until the end of June.
