OSH/16 - ODEON Shiraz

WE'VE LONGED TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT WHO WE ARE.

JUST 749 BOTTLES PRODUCED.

OUR TRIBUTE TO SHIRAZ, AND TO THOSE WHO CHASE IT AROUND THE WORLD.

BROUGHT TO YOU AFTER A DECADE COMMITTED TO PERFECTING OUR INTERPRETATION OF SHIRAZ. 

Treated with the kind of obsessive intent it takes to build a legacy wine, we've put years of study into the bottle here.  Avicii said "One day you'll leave this world behind, so live a life you will remember". It's that spirit which fuelled our bravery to make ODEON Shiraz a reality. 

THIS IS ONE FOR THE CELLAR. DRINK 2025-2035.

TASTING NOTES

The power and elegance build rather than assault. You'll pick elements of dark fruit, mocha, dried bay and char as the structure builds to a crescendo. 
The tannins are built to last, and we recommend cellaring for 10+.
