170th Anniversary Shiraz
WE'RE 170 YEARS OLD!
In 1853, Joseph Drayton arrived in the Hunter Valley, and together with six generations of his family, established one of the oldest and most respected wine brands in Australia.
To celebrate our 170th Birthday, we've crafted a Limited Release Shiraz, made with the best parcels of fruit from the highly-rated 2017 Vintage.
And to thank our loyal customers (past, present and future) for their support, we are offering this ultra premium wine at an affordable price, so that many can experience what 170 years of high quality, honest winemaking tastes like.
A classic dry Hunter Shiraz. Rich and concentrated. Deep purple in colour. Aromas of pepper and blackcurrant. Layered with complex flavours of dark fruits, plums and cherries, followed by firm, yet velvety tannins, and a long pleasant aftertaste, that makes you smile and shout "Happy Birthday Draytons!". Possibly. Maybe. Not necessarily.
Drinking extremely well now, but will benefit from further careful cellaring.
