A last minute export cancellation has left us with 128 cases of our 95 Point Yarra Valley Shiraz.
Named "Syrah" in Europe, South America, and New Zealand but "Shiraz" in Australia - Shiraz is Australia's well-known and most widely planted variety.
Hailing from the South-eastern region of France, this varietal is grown in practically every wine region in Australia - a testament to its adaptable nature.
In the Yarra Valley, our Shiraz is classed as a cool climate and boasts a distinctive warm spice and peppery flavour, revered by Shiraz enthusiasts.
Price is for a case of 12.
Black plum, tart boysenberry, and red liquorice aromas combine with subtle white pepper, tobacco, and smokey notes.
A warm, medium body with flavours of dark berries and caramelised fig, hints of mocha, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fine tannins and soft vanillin oak lead to a lingering finish.
Cellaring potential of 5-8 years.
95 points - Ned Goodwin, 2021 Wine Companion
"Yarra meets a peripheral northern Rhone pocket. Think Crozes. Perhaps Saint Joseph. Far from prosaic, this is a delicious rendition of pulp, perfume, and all that syrah/shiraz can deliver when in the right hands and in the right possie. Think violet, blueberry, nori, tapenade, a whiff of meat, and a skein of peppery acidity for length, freshness, and a big grin. Drink in large drafts. No point in ageing. Reduction massaged into pleasure."
93 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
"A significant step up in quality on recent releases of this label. We're in business here. Ripe cherry-plum flavours meet sweet cedarwood, five-spice, pepper, and smoked meats. It's both hearty and refreshing, in its own way. It's a lovely wine."
