2013 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 outstanding premium wine is deep crimson in colour. Intense berry fruit aromas, with hints of delicate oak. The palate is medium bodied, with rich blackcurrant fruit flavours. The tannins are soft & silky smooth. It's drinking beautifully now, but will continue to improve in the bottle. Langton's Vintage Rating = 9/10
A wine ideally suited to beef, lamb, spicy curries, kangaroo, veal, or aged hard cheeses.
