De Iuliis planted a small block of 3.5 acres of Shiraz and 1.5 acres of Touriga Nacional at their Lovedale Road vineyard in 2008. This unique blend of 80% Shiraz gives the wine floral fruit characteristics with savoury Hunter regional structure and the 20% Touriga Nacional (native of Portugal), which lifts the aroma and adds complexity to the wine.
