To qualify for the Remus Old Vine Shiraz blend, the vines need at least 50 years of age and to be managed sustainably. The blend is made of Shiraz fruit from a number of Eden Valley sub-regions including Moculta, Keyneton and Central Eden Valley.,/p>
Named Remus after one of the two brothers who form the foundation myth of Rome, the wine is not as forceful as its brother, Romulus. It’s more elegant and shows more finesse—as one might expect from Eden Valley.
"Impenetrable blackish-purple in appearance, this shiraz has tons of extract and lashings of personality. Complex aromas of minerals, stewed berries, licorice, and spices sweet and savoury are very inviting and very powerful. Despite the potency of all this, there's an element of floral delicacy too. Seamless, plush and velvety, with layered ripe tannins, this is a tour de force that should grow into something very spcial with the passing years."
