Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 The Fruit Bat Shiraz has intense notes of warm plums, mulberries, dark chocolate and game plus a hint of baking spices and a whiff of prunes. Full bodied with a medium to firm level of chewy tannins, it has very good fruit concentration in the mid-palate and a long finish with the spice notes pleasantly seasoning the dried fruits. Drink it 2013 to 2022+.

Wine maker notes
An old shearing shed on the property is home to tiny fruit bats that live in the old hessian wool sacks. The vineyard is watched over by fourth generation winemaker Chester Osborn, depicted on the front label as a wild pixie hanging ‘bat-like’ from the distinctive red stripe.
