    Winemaker's Notes:

    George Wyndham became the father of Australian Shiraz after planting Australia's first commercial Shiraz vineyard in 1830. His innovative spirit is a proud legacy that endures to this day at Wyndham Estate.

    Selected parcels from our most outstanding Shiraz blocks were harvested at optimum maturity, gently crushed and then fermented in small, static fermenters and inoculated with a neutral strain of yeast. Fermentation temperatures were moderate, and over extraction of tannins was avoided by careful monitoring during daily tasting and regular analysis. After pressing, the wine was transferred into selected new and one year old barrels for up to 16 months. After this time each barrel was tasted by winemakers prior to blending and any not up to exacting standards were culled. This wine has undergone minimal filtration to minimise stripping of flavor.

    Dark cherry color with bright purple hues. Spicy chocolate mint nose with lifted violets and vanilla bean.

    Dense ripe blackberry fruits with a luscious mid palate and a velvety tannin finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Polished and lively, with rhubarb and pomegranate notes that weave through plum and spice as this heads for the finish. The tannins are well-buffed. Drink now through 2015.

    Notn a lot of complexity, bur a very smooth and drinkable wine. For $12.99 it is a great value.

    This was very disappointing. It simply didn't taste like anything, just generic heavy tannins. I was quite disappointed.
