Tasting Notes

SMITHS PADDOCK SHIRAZ 2012

2012  was a wet and cool vintage, resulting in harvest at 13 degrees baume before the wine spent 12 months on old French Oak.

Sharing some, albeit not all characteristics of the Syrahs of the Northern Rhone which inspired it, this magnificently vivid (if we do say so) hued wine displays both black and red fruits on a firm and approachable finish, and like the finest villages wines of the old world is made to enjoy now!

SMITHS PADDOCK SHIRAZ 2013

2013 was hot and dry, resulting in small and intensely flavoured grapes.

These precious berries have produced a wine that is dark and intensely purple in colour, with black fruit aromas and complex spice and perfume in the background. Yet again our granite soils have produced a wine that will delight and is reminiscent of styles from the Northern Rhone.

SMITHS PADDOCK SHIRAZ 2014

2014 was another hot and dry year producing precious, small and intensely flavoured grapes.

This  Shiraz is vibrant, deep purple in colour and tastes of cherry ripe, plush blackberries and red liquorice. Yet again our granite soils have produced a wine that will delight.

Enjoy!

SMITHS PADDOCK SHIRAZ 2015

2015 was another exceptionally dry vintage.

Despite near record low rainfall, our hardy Shiraz vines produced small berries with intense flavours. These grapes underwent post ferment maceration and then spent 9 months in French Oak Barrels.

This delightful wine, has aromas of fresh red and blackberries with crushed herb and spice sitting in the background. The palate is juicy and vibrant, rounding off with firm but fine tannins.

Enjoy!

SMITHS PADDOCK 2016 SHIRAZ

2016 was another near, record breaking dry year. Against all odds, our hardy and resilient Shiraz vines, with their roots sunk deep into the granitic sands produced small intensely flavoured grapes.

This Vintage is aromatic with complex aromas of red and blackberry fruit, with crushed herbs, spice and perfume sitting in the background! These characters are also evident on the palate, which is juicy and vibrant, rounding off with firm but fine tannins.

Enjoy!

SMITHS PADDOCK 2016 RESERVE SHIRAZ

2016 was another near, record breaking dry year. Against all odds, our hardy and resilient Shiraz vines, with their roots sunk deep into the granitic sands produced small intensely flavoured grapes.

Prior to bottling the 2016 Vintage, we selected two French Oak barrels to mature for another 6 months. 

We are very excited to release the result! We have produced an even more elegant, silky wine, with complex aromas of red and blackberry fruit and spice. A vibrant and juicy palate rounded with firm and fine tannins. Cheers to French Oak!

SMITHS PADDOCK 2017 SHIRAZ

Our hardy Shiraz vines thrived in the wet spring and cool summer producing beautiful grapes.

Handpicked at a baume of 13.2, undergoing post ferment maceration and then spending nearly 12 months in French Oak barrels.

This Vintage is a deep, purple red. Aromatically awash with red and black fruits with perfume and spice adding complexity. The palate is very approachable with a juiciness on the front and fine tannins providing backbone.

Enjoy!
