Haselgrove Catkin Shiraz
The Haselgrove Catkin Shiraz is deep violet in colour, the nose is bursting with intensity and a lifted perfume. Red summer berries intertwine with dark cherry and plum, finished with integrated spicy French oak. Rich and full flavoured yet elegant, a powerful wine without being excessively weighty. Luscious fruits combine with quality oak giving structure and mouth coating tannins.
The Catkin story revolves around the Hazel Tree. The Celts believed the trees that grew around them all held special powers. The Hazel Tree is arguably the quintessential Celtic Tree due to it’s legendary position at the heart or entrance of the Otherworld.
This wine is named after the flower of the Hazel. Catkins are the cascading bunches of Hazel flowers seen in late winter signifying the origin of harvest with exploding colour and life.
