2018 Shiraz

2018 Headliner Shiraz

The premium 2018 Shiraz is a bright crimson purple with an elegant perfumed nose. There’s a lot going on with the palate showing ripe dark fruits along with spice and white pepper. The tannins are silky smooth. A glorious red wine that you can drink now or cellar with confidence.

2018 Vintage Notes

The 2018 growing season started off well following above average winter rainfall, but it was dry and warm after that. Owing to later veraison in the Eden Valley as opposed to the Barossa floor, the hot spell in January and February did not cause any concern to the Avon Brae vineyard and the vines took it all comfortably in their stride. Thankfully, Mother Nature did not dish out any adverse events this year and harvest started in March with the whites, and finished on 19 April with the last of the Cabernet blocks. Yields were above average across the board, but quality was good, with Riesling a standout as usual.
