Økologisk og Biodynamisk.
’Smagsmæssigt er det blødt, cremet … fed, opulent og så alligevel med den forførende kølige elegance, idet en ren syrlighed skaber en fin balance i vinen. Det er virkelig en koncentreret vin med tyngde og alligevel rigtig stor elegance … stor vin.’

The 2017 Obsidian is a deep, dark scented wine with hints of sweet plums and nutmeg, with creamy notes and vanillin overtones. This wine is the ultimate in integration and balance. There is an elegance and purity in this vintage that invites you to savour every mouthful. The fine tannins and balanced acidity are a direct result of the wonderful quality in the vineyard and careful handling in the winery. This wine needs to be decanted to enjoy at its best.
This Shiraz wine is hand crafted, shows the typicity of our great quality vineyards and nurtured so the purity of Shiraz prevails, resulting in a truly remarkable and polished wine. Our oak regime with this wine was judicious to showcase Gemtree’s provenance, and the outcome is an elegant and pure Shiraz. The Obsidian is a luxurious wine impeccably integrated and balanced that will reward you with mid – long term cellaring.
