The exceptional fruit for Bishop creates aromas of spice and lifted red and dark fruits with a refined opulence on the palate. Great drinking now but this wine will also benefit from 10-12 years careful cellaring.
A blend of fruit from 35 year-old vines & 120 year-old vines is the key to the Bishop cuvee. The fruit from younger vines is fresh & vibrant, whilst Shiraz from the oldest blocks in the Ebenezer vineyard give structure and enhance palate profile.

The Name 關於命名
Bishop is the family name of Colin’s wife Judith. In naming this wine, Colin wanted to pay tribute to his wife and to recognise her contribution to the family company.
The Symbol 象徵符號
A powerful symbol dominates the new label for the Bishop Shiraz. Fittingly, the sign of Venus, which has come to represent women and feminine energy, is the centrepiece of the new Bishop label’s symbol.
