This wine is named in honour of Brother John May, SJ: the Sevenhill Cellars' Jesuit Winemaker Emeritus. Brother May has been at Sevenhill since 1963 and the fruit for this wine is hand picked from a single block of high-quality, low yielding Shiraz vines which were planted by Brother May shortly after his arrival at Sevenhill Cellars. This is a beautiful, long lived, wine with rich berry flavours. Each bottle is individually numbered.

Deep colour; has all the blood and thunder that goes with uber-ripe shiraz, luscious black fruits, licorice and dark chocolate wrapped up by ripe tannins, the oak eaten by the oak. Closure: Screwcap. 15.5% alcohol. AUD$85
