2014 Argos Shiraz - 1.5 L Magnum Gift Boxed
Taken from a single vineyard in the cooler area of Eden Valley, Barossa. Grown on an ancient podzolic soil with a low fertility. The wine has intense ruby colour with a bouquet of red and dark berry fruits balanced with black pepper and spice. The shiraz is crafted to enhance the rich, dark red and blackberry fruits, with 40% new French oak for a minimum of 24 months resulting in an elegant, silky tannin finish. Extended aging in the bottle before release integrates the unique characters of this premium Shiraz over time. Vegan Friendly.WINEMAKER: Jo Irvine

“The Odyssey”, written by Homer in 800 B.C., mentions the legend of Argos, a faithful greyhound waiting for his master Odysseus to return after 20 years fighting the Trojans. When he finally does return home, he disguises himself as a beggar and the only one to recognise him was his loyal greyhound Argos.
