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.  The ‘Kathleen’ was awarded bronze in the 2018 Victorian Wine Show after only a few months in the bottle.
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.
