Lagrein Shiraz Durif

LSD? Fair question. It doesn’t represent Limited Slip Differential, or Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. At least not in this form! It does however, represent the intriguing blend of Lagrein, Shiraz and Durif which makes a brightly coloured, and intensely fruit flavoured red wine. Enough to alter your state of mind? Maybe not. Groovy? Stop it. But definitely tasty enough to deliver your taste buds an intensely pleasurable high. We recommend you enjoy LSD liberally, with a group of very close friends.

Wine Press and Accolades

2015 LSD: 90 points – Huon Hooke - Hooked on Wine – Mar 2017

“Very deep, dark purple/red colour with a fresh, clean and attractive bouquet of mixed berries, with savoury side to it – not too primary fruited. The wine is full-bodied and soft, clean and bright, with a faint middle-palate hollowness, which hardly detracts. The rich, ripe fruit sweetness makes up. A highly successful blend. ”

2015 LSD: 91 Points – Halliday Wine Companion 2018 – Aug 2017

“The lagrein comes from a low-yielding block in Mt Crawford in the Eden Valley, shiraz from 19yo vines on the BIL Block and 25yo Chook Shed Block of the estate Resurrection Vineyard in Ebenezer, the durif from the Hoffman family vineyard in Bethany. The extremely eclectic blend comes together well, led by lagrein from the cool slopes of Mt Crawford, which (inter alia) is responsible for the crimson colour, and very likely the juicy freshness of the fruit. It is well balanced, with no rough edges requiring time, and it’s a lethal blind tasting wine.”

2015 LSD: 94 points – Tony Keys - The Key Report – Feb 2017

“Tasted January 2017: LSD = Lagrein, Shiraz and Durif, It’s not a blend I’m aware of tasting before, but using this one as a benchmark I will be happy to taste more, it’s a rollercoaster ride of flavours that both excite and make one ponder over what they are tasting, 94 points and good value at $27 ”
