91 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
Rich and full flavoured, yet elegant and refined. A Pyrenees Shiraz is one of the iconic Victorian wines and is an essential part of every cellar.

Tasting Notes

Delicious flavours of cherry and plum, with hints of nutmeg and chocolate integrate smoothly through the vanilla oak. Robust yet refined this elegant, cool climate Shiraz features delightful drive, length and supple tannins. Enjoyable now for its wonderful flavours, or savour over the next decade.

Food Matching

With its rich, delicate flavours, this wine pairs beautifully with a Sunday roast lamb, an Italian casserole or eggplant parmigiana. 

Cellaring

Fantastic now, but will also age gracefully for years.

 

Winemaking
Sourced from eight years old vines planted on rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were machine harvested mid-March, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into French oak barrels (five years old). Fermentation took place over 18 days with selected yeast. The wine was kept on lees contact for a further two months. Finally, after five months the wine was racked and stabilised (protein and tartrate) and prepared for bottling.
