The Meister is the epitome of the iron fist in a velvet glove. A genuinely world-class Barossa Valley Shiraz, the 2015 vintage made the list of the World's Top 5 Shiraz in the 2018 Syrah du Monde. The wine gets grand cru treatment with 100% new French oak. Combined with the splendid fruit, it has a three-dimensional presence on the palate.
Comprising The Meister are some of the very finest Shiraz parcels from the Fechner family’s vineyard in northern Eden Valley, Barossa Valley, including Shiraz plantings dating back to 1906.
Sourced from the oldest vines on the Fechner Vineyard, matured in 100% new French oak. Rich, yet the latent power of the wine is so well balanced that the layered stream of blackberry and blackcurrant flavours is so fluent and harmonious that it's easy to have one glass, then another, neither tannins nor oak interrupting the flow. The ultimate iron fist in a velvet glove - outstanding in every respect.
