2014 RCV 'Epitaph' Shiraz
Inspired by our winemakers late father David Ardill, 'Epitaph' is your final word.
Being a limited release, this wine is only made when the vintage is of outstanding quality, to date there has only been two vintages - 2010 and 2014.
Renowned South Australian artist Tom Gleghorn was our artist in residence for the 2010 vintage and created another beautiful piece of artwork for this label.
Sourced from our 1919 Block vineyard in Leasingham, this super premium shiraz had prolonged open fermentation before being gently basket pressed. The resulting profile shows cigar box, chocolate, stewed plums and soft ripe tannins.

“...this wine is massively deeply coloured, almost black. it has a big brambly nose with lots of berries and some earthiness. On the palate it is a big wine with hints of fruit sweetness from fully ripe grapes, a lovely juicy palate which is smooth and finishes quite tight. A truly SUPERB WINE.”
