Deep dark plum red with a slight purple hue. Aromas of ripe plums, blackcurrant and dark cherries with a spicy cinnamon and baking spice overlay. Underlying tones of vanilla and mocha give lift to the nose. The palate is rich, with dominant blackcurrant and hints of dark plum, blackberry and dark chocolate with subtle violet floral lift. Good balanced acidity and smooth velvety tannins complement the spicy backbone of supporting oak giving additional complexity. An underlying savoury spice character is complimented by primary fruit characters with generous length and weight on the finish.

Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
"Fruit forward and nicely lifted, the wine shows dark plum, spiced cherry, clove and almond characters on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate delivering juicy fruit flavours backed by fine texture and silky tannins. Friendly and charming for everyday drinking. At its best: now to 2024. AU$20.00. Jan 2021."
Our Pilot Block range is named in recognition of the first trial vineyard planted by Chain of Ponds in 1985. The Pilot Block vineyard was planted with numerous varieties to test their suitability to cool climate conditions. The success of that trial started Chain of Ponds on its winemaking journey.
Grapes were sourced from premium vineyards and vinified to retain vibrant ripe plum and blackberry fruit characters. The wine was then matured in French oak for 12 months giving richness and complexity. We hope you enjoy this finely balanced, soft and elegant Shiraz.
