Carillion Wines Fenestella Shiraz 2019

This flagship Shiraz is part of Carillion Wines “Origins” series and is sourced from the Tallavera Grove vineyard, planted in 1994 from cuttings taken from the lauded 100+ year old Tallawanta vineyard. The ninth release of this label and is thus named for the 300 million year old bryozoan fossils found throughout the vineyard. The wine is made from a single block in the vineyard which is characterised by its Terra Rossa clay over limestone soils.
