Springflat Shiraz, along with Alan’s Cabernet, is one of two wines Wild Duck Creek Estate was founded on. Originally being a single vineyard wine, we gradually introduced new vineyards to the blend, creating a truly regional wine. Springflat Shiraz is now a blend of three vineyards; two in the north on Cambrian soils over Ironstone and Granite, and one in the south on clay loams over mudstone. Matured in 40% new French and American oak hogsheads for 22 months, Springflat Shiraz is a wine created for the shiraz lover, who with careful cellaring, will be enjoying this wine for up to 20 years.
ROBERT PARKER The Wine Advocate - 94 points - Drink Date: 2008 - 2021 "The blockbuster 2004 Shiraz Springflat’s inky/purple color is followed by a wine that pushes concentration to the limit. Made from tiny yields of 1.5 to 1.8 tons of fruit per acre, aged in 50% new and 50% 1 and 2 year old oak (half American and half French) barrels, it is a huge, rich, backward Shiraz that still assaults the palate and olfactory senses. Drink it over the following 15 or more."
