OVERVIEW Lawson's Padthaway Shiraz is a single vineyard wine that is recognised as one of Australia's very best. 2012 was a fantastic vintage. The wine showing great power and finesse. Perfectly balanced with careful cellaring this wine will continue to develop for another 15-20 years. For optimal presentation and drinking, decanting before serving is a recommended.
TASTE Full bodied and lush, the palate offers rich plum and sweet berry fruit flavours, with lingering savoury tannins. Beautifully fresh with both flavour intensity and refinement, this is the embodiment of great Australian Shiraz, from one of its standout regions and a signature Lawson's.
AROMA Delicious dark plum and eucalyptus aroma.
ENJOY WITH Red meat dishes with robust concentrated flavours.
VINTAGE CONDITONS Lawson's Padthaway Shiraz is only made in the best of years, and 2012 very much fits that definition. Good winter rainfall saw healthy canopy growth early in the growing season, then a warm and relatively dry spring and summer kept the pest and disease risk to a minimum. The summer heat bought on an early harvest and the 2012 Shiraz is a stand out vintage.
