About this Product

A northern Rhône (think Côte Rôtie) inspired Shiraz blend which in 2016 was made up of 95% Shiraz, 2% Viognier, 2% Mataro and 1% Marsanne. Fruit was hand-picked, bunch sorted and destemmed directly to the Yarra Yering half- tonne open-fermenters. As much whole berry as possible is retained to encourage perfume. Some stalks were added back to some of the fermenters in order to contribute structure and aroma. Some fermenters added frozen Viognier skins to the bottom,some with Marsanne skins. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, 30% new before blending and bottling. The bouquet is pleasantly balanced with subtle spice and vanilla, floral, violet and dark berry flavours which recur on the palate. It has a deep, sneaky complexity. The tannins are soft and ample, fleshy and quite elegant. There is a lovely fruit-sweet core. A gorgeous wine.

About Australia

A large, climatically diverse country with incredibly diverse terrain, producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet. Both red wine and white wine from Australian are wildly popular and beloved.

Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety; Barossa Valley leads the way, producing exceptionally bold and supple versions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia's second most planted variety, can be blended with Shiraz but also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône Blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version and Semillon is often blended in Margaret River or shines on its own in the Hunter Valley. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria.

About Shiraz

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah, also known as Shiraz, accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world.

Syrah once played a role as a blending partner to the austere Cabernet in Bordeaux as it added some body and texture. Now, Australians are fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
