One of the standout wines of the vintage from one of the standout blokes in the Barossa Valley.
There's so much fruit in here it's hard to believe they got a cork in, raspberries drive the show, really intense and ripe with earthy undertones, gentle spice and oak too.

Our homage to the great old vines of the Barossa Valley, this wine is composed of 100% Shiraz. Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 at least. The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.
The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier, which as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the velvety mouth feel with the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.
This wine is deep maroon with perfumed aromas of dark chocolate and blackberry. There are also some hints of coffee and golden syrup. The palate is an intense explosion of sweet, luscious fruit and toasty oak, even so the texture is silky smooth and creamy and seems to glide over the tongue. Well balanced, the wine finishes with cinnamon and licorice that linger for some time.
Not subtle, but this whopper is crammed with lots of good flavours and is rich and powerful. Mint, anise and eucalyptus aromas; very ripe fruit; massive body and structure. A meal in itself.
