This brooding wine from a fantastic vintage is hitting it’s straps right now. It’s showing rich blackcurrant, mocha and some more developed savoury flavours and terrific structure, finishing incredibly powerfully and focused.
You can’t go past slow cooked beef cheeks with this.

Dalwhinnie is located near the small village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Australia and is a super premium producer of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay.
After 40 years of growing grapes, the 16 hectare vineyard is now fully mature, producing true varietal fruit characters with great concentration of flavours. At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, this unique bowl of vines is a world unto itself, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges.
