Handpicked from selected parcels of their vines, this range of wine pays homage to Inigo of Loyola. Originally a mercenary, he turned from a life of violence to dedicate himself to helping others. Co-founder of the Order of Jesuits whose members would eventually found Sevenhill Cellars in 1851.
Here is a generous Shiraz made with fruit from vineyards more than forty years old, namely the Brother Lenz dry-grown block and Brother Dan block. These older vines, combined with more recently planted blocks, provide fruit of great depth and diversity.
Aromas of red currants, sarsaparilla, dark chocolate and sweet spice lead to a palate of vibrant fruit and silky tannins. A moderate maturation in French oak hogsheads has maintained freshness whilst adding complexity and grace.
