Opulence, complexity and balance all come to mind when thinking about the Clos Otto Shiraz. With vines planted by previous owner Otto Kasper using a cutting from an ageing and secret Shiraz clone and tended to with almost antique machinery and a well-practiced hand, the Clos Otto vineyard consistently yields super low quantities with ultra rich flavours.
The Clos Otto fruit is sourced from a small, eastern-facing block within the estate. The combination of the micro-climate (missing only the late afternoon sun) and the soil (red clay loam with underlying red plastic clay) found on this block provides the perfect conditions for premium Shiraz production.
Ripe, roasted and redolent of blackberry jam, black pepper, liquorice and grilled red meat. The flavours are poised and balanced against a background of firm tannins and fine acidity. There's an ineffable sweetness to the profile, but this finishes dry.
This wine is only available to buy as a case of 6 bottles. We have 2 cases (12 bottles) of this wine in stock. This wine is available in its original wooden case if required.
