Our Kingston Echelon range showcases some of the best fruit we bring into the winery each vintage. Only wines of exceptional fruit vibrancy and flavour intensity are selected for Echelon, wines that have superb drinkability now as well as the ability to age beautifully.
Our home state of South Australia is home to many of Australia’s greatest wine regions and we are blessed to bring in Shiraz from many of these regions each vintage, giving our winemakers a wide selection of different parcels to select from. In 2012 the fruit from Clare Valley and Mt Benson displayed the greatest opulence and it was these parcels that were selected for Echelon, put into oak hogsheads and allowed to mature for 18 months prior to bottling. Cellar maturation followed before release in 2016.
This wine showcases the great qualities of this iconic Australia variety; strength and depth of character. Lusciously full, its wonderful upfront blueberries and forest fruits moving to a mid-palate of black olives delivers with a smooth, complex tobacco oak finish.
