2016 McBains Crossing Shiraz

Description

The tyranny of distance coupled with a drought ridden river transport system helped drive the development of the South Australian railways from the mid1850’s.

The railway line running next to our vineyard was vital in originally servicing the prosperous agricultural, manufacturing and mining industries of the fledgling South Australian colony. The railway line was later operated as a heritage tourist train service until the early 2000’s. Sadly it has not been used since, however the railway crossing signal serves as a proud reminder of this history.

A vibrant nose of red berries that is enhanced by a touch of aniseed and spice. The palate offers juicy red fruit flavours with a rich, soft mouth feel and light, lingering tannins.
