The Winner's Tank Shiraz 2014
The Winner's Tank name relates to an old water tank that sits in the corner of the vineyard. In true Aussie spirit, a strong rivalry exists between the three neighboring towns in the local Australian Rules Football competition. Each year the winning team heads out to the vineyard to paint the tank in their team colors.
Produced by Eskadale Vineyards. Winner's Tank highlights what can be accomplished when an extremely talented winemaker gets his hands on some premium, Langhorne Creek fruit. Winner's Tank is a relatively new venture between Reid Bosward of Kaesler Vineyards, and David and Cathy Knight, owners of Oddfellows Wines. Bosward was more heavily involved in the earlier vintages as David continued his eonology degree. Today Knight bears the majority of the winemaking responsibilites but is able to evaluate each vintage with Bosward and call on him as needed.
