An exceptional, ancestral Shiraz that engages the drinker with notes of rare beef, leather, spice and ripe cherries. Rugged dark chocolate tannins and subtle oak drive through for a long finish.
Amidst the Schild family estate in Australia’s Barossa Valley lie four rows of ancient Shiraz vines, planted in 1847 by Johan and William Jacob (of the famed creek), just eleven years after the foundation of South Australia. The block is situated between Jacob’s Creek and the North Para River, in an area known as Moorooroo, an aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting of two waters’.
Described by James Halliday as an “infinitely valuable and rare block”, at over 170 years old the Moorooroo Shiraz vines are amongst the oldest in the world with its prized yield producing just 200 cases a year. “A Leviathan bottle to end all comparisons” — 99 points, James Halliday.
