TASTING NOTES:

Shiraz like this makes the world a better place. Medium bodied and spicy but with this trademark Grampins plum essence fruit. So much flavour, without being heavy and dried out. It's a ripper.

Sourced from a close-planted block in the Grampians, it was made by a globe-trotting winemaker who made it big in the US and returned home to make truly handmade wines.

Needless to say, he's not short of talent, as witnessed by the previous vintage (under a slightly different label) landing a huge 96 points from James Halliday. The 2015 vintage of this red (under it's another label) was also a star, landing 96 points from Halliday and the 2014 vintage scored a whopping 97 points.

WINEMAKING:

This is a region of arresting natural beauty, set against the magnificent Grampians Mountain Range. With a longstanding viticultural tradition dating back to the 1850s gold rush, it is amongst the oldest continuously producing wine districts in Australia. Shiraz is the rightful star of the region. It makes multifaceted, intensely flavoured wines with silky tannins, signature spice and underlying earthiness.

The Grampians wine region is situated between the Grampians, Serra and Pyrenees Ranges at elevations of 240-400 metres. Over 600 ha of vineyard are centred around the townships of Great Western, Ararat, Stawell, Buangor, Moyston and Halls Gap. While the region has a Mediterranean climate of warm days, cold nights and mild Autumns, the proximity of nearby mountains have an overriding cooling effect. Soils consist largely of grey loamy sands and clay loams. The Grampians National Park is renowned for a wide array of native plant species and wildlife, world-class rock climbing and ancient Aboriginal rock art sites. The breathtaking panoramic scenery is composed of steep, craggy mountain peaks, rocky escarpments, gorges and tumbling waterfalls.

FOOD PAIRING:

Enjoy this wine with good company, roasted red meats, hearty casseroles and fine cheeses.
