Current Vintage: 2016
Laudamus (Latin for praise) is our flagship Shiraz and created only in special vintages. A modern interpretation of Barossa Shiraz, with the vineyard playing the major role. The vineyard in question is the “house” block which is our original planting of 1654 shiraz planted in 2001 by Dad and my brother John. The vines sit on a gentle slope with shallow Terra Rossa red clay loam over a band of limestone. This allows for plenty of good nutrition from the loam, but prevents overly vigorous vine activity from the hard limestone barrier underneath. As such, the vines are much lower yielding and produce exceptional quality fruit.
