A flagship wine of ours. Perhaps THE flagship wine, the best 2/3 barrels of pressings off our home vineyard. As our 11 acres are fully planted there is no ability to make any more, although we would love to. It has outstanding length and a plush mouthfeel. Velvety tannins coat the mouth throughout the long, earthy finish. A wine of great presence young, but will continue to age gracefully for many years to come.
We believe we have combined the wonderful suitability of Shiraz and the Swan Valley with thoughtful and considered vineyard management. This produces the superb raw material from which we craft our Reserve Shiraz.
“I’m happy to go on record as saying I think Faber Reserve Shiraz is one of the best, and most distinctive Shiraz wines produced in Australia.
Powerful, intense, ferrous and commanding style of Shiraz. Black fruit, chocolate and liquorice, dried banana, dried flowers and sweet spiced oak. It’s full-bodied, flooded with flavour, inky and brooding, with a mass of rusty fleshy tannin, a fair bit of oak, sure, but mopped up by the purple torrent of fruit. Chewy, generous and very long. It’s a wine of thunder and intent, and I know they age beautifully too. So good.”
