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.
To qualify for inclusion in this wine all vines must be 50+yo and managed sustainably. This comes from three vineyards, two 60+yo, the third 80+yo, so there's no issue on that score. The palate of the wine tells you the vines are in good health. The tannins are polished and fine, the fruits sombre but composed, the balance good.
