Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
All the fruit for this wine was sourced from various sites across the Longbottom family vineyards. The differing soil types of red loam, black loam and deep sand over limestone contribute distinct aromas, flavors and tannin structures to the wine. Pillar Box quality vineyards are harvested at optimum ripeness and kept separate for blending options. The wine is matured for 10 months using 80% French and 20% American oak. The most outstanding Shiraz blocks are blended to create the Pillar Box Shiraz.


Serving Hints
This wine is a great accompaniment to a veal saltimbocca.
