The Stork Shiraz honours the late Ken Mackenzie, pilot, businessman,farmer and benefactor. Stork was Ken’s Second World War nickname (as he was tall with long thin legs and a Spitfire pilot) and Shiraz was his preferred red wine.
This limited volume wine represents a vineyard selection of Shiraz from a specific site that is planted solely on clay–rich “terra rossa” type soils.
The vineyard ripens a full month later than our Gravel Hill Shiraz site.
Vibrant red berries, dried herbs and cherries combine with hints of wood spice and vanilla on the nose. The palate is broad shouldered, shows bold, juicy black fruit and rich, full tannins
