A bequiling wine, which is about freshness rather than power, almost Burgundian in its elegance.
Made from low-yielding Grenache and Shiraz bush vines in the Islander Estate’s Jumbuck vineyard, Old Rowley is almost Burgundian in its elegance. A beautiful, medium bodied wine which is about freshness rather than power, beguiling the drinker with its supple raspberry and boysenberry flavours. Fresh and soft with lifted florals gently taming the vanillin oak and clove notes, this is truly a charmer of a wine.
Australian Wine Companion 2020
A hand-picked 60/40% grenache/shiraz blend, matured in a demi-muid for 7 months on heavy lees. A full-bodied wine with tannins part of the landscape, sultry red and black fruits the major part. Finishes with conviction, and a savoury farewell. Built to age. 95 points.
