Tasting Notes

Winemaking and Viticulture

Much of the unique character of this wine is developed in the vineyard, low yielding spur-pruned vines with fruit harvested in the cool of the night to ensure fruit is delivered at temperatures less than 20 degrees. Fermentation is on skins in open top fermenters subsequent maturation in predominately French oak barrels for up to 22 months prior to bottling.

All the fruit is sourced solely from Shaw Wines Murrumbateman vineyard, an area renowned for production of premium cool climate wines. Stelvin closures are used for freshness and to ensure long term quality.

    Harvesting of their low-yielding, spur-pruned vines is done in the coolest parts of the evening to protect the fruit. Fermentation occurs on skins in open top fermenters, before the wine is transferred to French oak barrels for the next 22 months.

    An appealing mix of purple and violet. The nose offers lovely floral notes, mulberries, red cherries and spices. This is aromatic and fresh and entrancing. There is much to like here – fresh, balanced and elegant with soft acidity carrying the flavours. A wine of mid-length but what wins the day here is the delicious range of flavours – lovely berry fruit notes especially. This should drink well over the next 4 to 6 years and probably more, and is more compelling evidence that Shiraz really can be a star in the Murrumbateman region.
    Drink 2022 – 2028. 92 points.

    The cool-climate Canberra region produces a softer style of Shiraz that goes beautifully with food, and here’s a good example (we loved it with the duck pancakes served at the opening of [email protected]). With a delicate nose of black cherries and red and black berries, it has fine tannins, a hint of spice and a lingering finish.

    Bold, concentrated character with smooth tannins and aromas of cooked black plums, black cherries, mineral and redcurrants. Integrated palate with notes of cassis, coffee beans, peppers, violets, juicy plums and oak. Awarded Silver Medal.

    Sometimes you want a wine with bite but not too much, at which times cool climate shiraz is your friend. Don’t tell your doctor that. 9.3/10.

    Sweet black pepper, ripe fruit characters, mint and wild thyme with some spice and elegant weight. Bronze Medal.

    Youthful red and bright in the glass. Fresh, red/blue fruit aromas, a touch of spice and bramble. Crunchy red fruits on the palate, cherry and raspberry, a touch of cedar and leafiness. Tangy acidity and firm tannins bring line and shape.
