Block 6 vineyard faces east and rows run north south with significant undulation. Vines are spur and cane pruned with the canes wrapped onto the top wire of the low lying trellis. The present 3.5 acres comprises a corner of red loam, some heavy clay in the middle of the block and gravely alluvial soils on the lower side. The underlying “South Maslin Sands” geology is extremely complex containing layers of glauconite, limestone, sandstone and siltstone. Deep ruby colour. Nose of perfumed notes of potpourri, dark cherries, charcuterie and a hint of cedar. Palate has layers of concentrated dark fruit, cacao and black olive. Followed by slowly building fine-grained chalky tannins of immense length. Rich and concentrated with power and finesse." - Winemaker Notes 

"Tasted from a Cadus puncheon, the 2017 Shiraz Block 6 looks like another great vintage of this wine. Blueberry liqueur, fresh florals and vanilla appear on the nose, while the full-bodied wine is creamy and rich yet structured, with a crisp, tight finish." - 96 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
