2017 The Wheelwright Collector's Edition wooden box
Six 750ml bottles of 2017 The Wheelwright shiraz presented in a branded wooden box.
Medium garnet with crimson hues. Lifted aromas of red plum, red currant, blue and black berries, rose hip and black pepper, with notes of bay leaf, sage, crushed flowering herbs, anise and hints of cedar. The palate is rich and plush, deep and concentrated with layers of spicy red cherry and red currant, interwoven with anise and vanilla. Balanced acidity gives freshness and poise, finishing with elegant, velvety, fine-grained tannins for a long fruit-driven finish.
“2017 The Wheelwright Single Vineyard Shiraz puts Eden Valley's spicy-herbal-savory complexities on full display. Scents of licorice, bay leaf, mint and rosemary accent cherry and redcurrant notes on the nose, giving it an almost medicinal edge. The cooler, later vintage seems to have accentuated those herbal nuances and lessened the overall scale and richness of the wine. It's still medium to full-bodied, silky and intriguingly complex, with a lingering finish and plenty of longevity ahead of it.” Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, 1 April 2022
