SIZE

“Ostrich Hill” recognises the birds which were once farmed on the hillsides opposite the very first Shiraz vines planted in this region. Now almost 45 years old, these magnificent vines consistently produce fruit with elegant, lifted varietal character.

Generous rounded plum and blackberry characters, with fine tannin structure and on the finish, a hint of toasted American Oak from 15 months in the barrel.
