      Tasting Notes
      Our Resurrection Vineyard in the Ebenezer sub-district of the Northern Barossa Valley, is blessed with varying topography, where the depth of the ancient red soils varies from centimeters to tens of meters. Amongst these soils are various Shiraz plantings that date back nearly a century, alongside younger – yet still mature – vines including ‘Maywald’, ‘Tahbilk’ and ‘1654’ selections. The combination of soil depth, aspect, vine age and vine selection makes each Shiraz parcel so distinctive, that small amounts are bottled each vintage as ‘Block’ wines under our Special Selections label.

      The Prophet is a blend of these special parcels, making it the embodiment of highly prized Shiraz vines from the Northern Barossa, Ebenezer, Resurrection Vineyard.

      Colour: Dark red with purple youthful rims.

      Aroma: Perfumed nose full of thyme, sage, plum and fresh berries, added complexities of leather and spice.

      Palate: Crunchy, lovely fruits of plum and blackberry, quintessential shiraz like fruits that balance perfectly with the oak flavours present. Fine tannins and softness on the midpalate give a round smooth sweetness.

      Food Match: BBQ Lamb ribs or infact any meat cooked by fire.

      Cellaring: 15 years.
