Block 4 (planted 1915). 223 dozen produced. Col McBryde one of the best, most thoughtful winemakers in this country, and indeed, maybe the world.

Blackberry, raspberry, a little sweet baking spice, mint and floral perfume, though those things, while good, mean nothing until you put the wine in your mouth; then it really takes off. This is a liquid ‘mineral’ delight, and the tannin is searching, but so fine and stony, and really marks this wine out as a rare bird. Dusty, biscuitty, classic Clare Shiraz of finesse and superb length. Yes.
