A wonderfully integrated nose of dark briary fruits and creamy, spicy oak unravels slowly from the glass. Whilst intense and powerful, the nose has lingering, elegant notes of vibrant fruits and summer pudding. The palate is full and rich with the soft dark black and blue fruits being framed by spiced mocha oak characters. Whilst powerful and rich the palate retains a refreshing drive and fruit dominance. The quality of the wine is exemplified in the long, lingering finish.

The Hemera Estate ‘Limited Release’ range is where we endeavour to present the purest expression of our vineyards. Parcels of fruit that show exceptional fruit purity, intensity and elegance are set aside at vintage and carefully matured to display their finest characteristics. If the wine lives up to these high expectations it will be bottled as part of this range.
The 2013 vintage saw very low rainfall in the winter and spring leading up to fruit ripening. This resulted in small berry and bunch formation and the commencement of vintage earlier than average. The smaller berries produced intense flavours in all varieties and excellent juice to skin ratios in reds. The resultant wines have pure varietal flavours with excellent mouth-feel and length to the palate.
The backbone of this wine is sourced from a spectacular vineyard in the Ebenezer sub-region of the Barossa Valley. The dark inky fruits and strong, masculine tannins that this region provides are then carefully balanced with the pristine blue fruits and softer tannin profiles of the best Shiraz from our own Hemera Estate vineyards. The aim is to create a classic Barossa Valley Shiraz with the signature Hemera Estate elegance and character.
