2015 Climbing Shiraz . Climbing wines are sourced from the higher elevation of our Estate grown vineyard above 600m (Orange appellation). They exhibit elegant yet intense fruit characters courtesy of low-yield vines set on ancient soils in the classic cool climate Orange appellation. They are testament to our high quality, cool climate winemaking in the region.
The Climbing name is inspired by the higher elevation vines that give such a unique character. The label imagery was drawn from an 1880’s ‘Dive Circus’ poster, with the dashing ‘Henry’ scaling heights inspired by the local extinct volcano peak, Mount Canobolas. Our quality range of Climbing Wines are perfect for food and wine matching. Try our suggestions below.

TASTING & VINTAGE NOTES
Deep red with purple edges. Plum, dark cherry and blackberry, with hints of spice, white pepper and dark chocolate notes. This is complemented by more savoury notes of black olive, leather and subtle oak.
Post ferment the parcels were separately drained and the skins gently pressed, with light pressings included. All parcels were then matured in French barrels for 12 months. The final blend was then lightly egg white fined and filtered for bottling.
