Not far from the mountains, where the Murray still runs deep and clear, is a great curve in the river. Planted here is our vineyard where gnarled old vines send their roots deep into the rose-coloured sandy soils. Premium wines have been made and enjoyed here at St Leonards since 1860.

A classic local Shiraz. Deep in colour with aromas of crushed red berries and dried herbs. Richly flavoured with sweet plum and dark fruit characters with a hint of spice in a smooth and balanced style.
The fruit was, destemmed and crushed then fermented in our old open vats, during which it was hand plunged several times per day for 10 days. After fermentation, the wine was pressed out in the old (1870’s) basket press. Maturation was in a combination of French and American barriques and puncheons for 18 months prior to bottling in December 2016.
Shiraz is Australia’s favourite red grape and a regional treasure. We are lucky enough to have fruit from old vines, with all the intensity and depth of flavour that they bring. Shiraz is a pleasure to work with because of the way in which it carries flavours and aromas specific to the region and even the vineyard block, and layers these on top of a base of rich, soft plummy fruit. So Shiraz wines are always reliable, yet always interesting and different.
