2017 Polish Hill River

Our award-winning, medium bodied 2017 Polish Hill River Shiraz is free driven and full of dark fruit flavours and chocolate. The fine textured tannins and lovely soft oak influence make this Clare Valley Regional Red a perfect match for food but also mellow enough to enjoy on its own.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour – Crimson red, purple hue
  • Aroma – Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, vanilla and liquorice notes.
  • Palate – Medium bodied, dark berried and plummy fruit flavours, soft, round, juicy palate with underlying oak and a firm, fine tannin structure.

Pauletts Vineyard


A wet winter and spring produced localised flooding in the Clare Valley in late September, which provided the region with plenty of subsurface moisture. Decent rains continued into vintage and coupled with mild temperatures, contributed to excellent fruit and, in turn, wine quality.
