RE-RELEASE of an old favourite.
Shiraz mostly sourced from our own vineyard blended with a selection of parcels from local Pyrenees growers, this Moates Lane comes from the spectacular 2018 vintage. A couple of pallets were kept back for a corporate client who has relinquished this stock, so their loss is your gain! Our 2018 Moates Lane Aged Shiraz is a wine that offers both elegance and intensity, making it a perfect companion for any special occasion. It is still amazingly fresh with vibrant fruit and the youthful tannins have softened to a full flavoured yet velvety wine offering great complexity.

A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured grapes.
