2007 Joseph Shiraz
The Icons range pays tribute to members of the Drayton Family, who became legends of the Hunter Valley. They distinguished themselves with extraordinary contributions to the betterment of the Drayton's brand, as well as to the region's wine community.
The Icons wines are a limited range, made only from the most highly rated vintages, using grapes carefully picked and graded to ensure premium quality.
Joseph Drayton first trod the rich Hunter Valley soil in 1853. He started our 170-year old journey of winemaking excellence and devotion to bottle the character of this region's terroir.
This premium Shiraz has been aged to perfection under cork in the cool of our underground cellar. Dark plum aromas, with hints of berry fruits. The palate is medium bodied with rich blackcurrant fruit flavours. The oak tannins are silky smooth. This wine is drinking beautifully now. Langton's Vintage Rating = 8/10
A wine ideally suited to BBQ meats and chargrilled veggies. Perfect with a rich Massaman curry, lamb shanks or a block of sharp crumbly cheddar.
