Deep brick-red in the glass with opulent, rich aromas of macerated plums, crème de cassis, blackberry and wild cherry along with a splash of cranberry which opens up the aromatic profile beautifully. Hints of deep-set spice – clove, cinnamon, fennel, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and creamy French oak.
The Thing is our top of the line Shiraz here at Sorby Adams. Sourced from our Home Vineyard high in the Eden Valley at 475 metres above sea level. Planted by Pastor Franz Julius Lehmann in 1932, the low-yielding, gnarled vines are some of the oldest in the region. Only our best barrels make their way into this classic, cool- climate Shiraz and the new 2008 release shows again, why the old-vine fruit of the Eden Valley is so highly sought after.
