The Whistling Eagle is known for its buoyant flight soaring easily to great heights. Its whistling cry is audible over long distances and its prey appears to be always taken from the ground. We believe the characteristics of the Whistling Eagle are reflected in our wines of balance and length, depth of colour and flavours that are always an expression of the ground from which they come.

Eagles Blood Shiraz

The Eagles Blood Shiraz is the ultimate expression from ancient Cambrian Earth to wine that displays spectacular colour, depth of flavour and balance.

Eagles Blood Shiraz is made with a minimal approach using traditional methods and barrelled in French and American Oak.

Eagles Blood Shiraz is a fine reflection of the terrior and the careful balance between viticulture and the environment.

2010 - This bright opaque wine leaps out of the glass and takes hold of your senses, wrapping you in a velvet blanket.  An immediate bouquet of dark berries and plum drift from the glass, followed by nutmeg, molasses and dark cherry on the palate. Hints of spiced chocolate and fine dusty tannins finishing this wines complete varietal and regional characteristics.

2009 - (Paul Moran) “truly a benchmark example from a region renowned for this variety. Intensity, complexity, balance and length with a unique harmony and ethereal quality”.

2008 - This wine displays an intense nose and palate of dark berry fruits and mocha with hints of clove, pepper and mint, finishing with earthy dark chocolate and rich velvet tannins. This wine is long and plush with lasting body.

2007 - The 2007 Eagles Blood Shiraz displays dark berry fruits and mocha with hints of cloves, pepper and mint. This well balanced wine has an intense palate, finishing with rich velvety tannins. This wine will benefit from long term cellaring and is best decanted.

Whistling Eagle Sangiovese – An initial fresh bouquet of cherry and strawberry is followed by savoury bramble fruit on the palate and delicate dusty tannins to finish. This is a smooth balanced wine.

2011 - Botrytis Semillon 375ml

Golden straw lustre captured in a bottle. The bouquet of honey suckle, peach and orange blossom drift from the glass. Stone fruit and hints of acid fill the palate. When drinking this wine, thoughts of peach tarte tarte tan come to mind.
