"Lifted plum bouquet with hints of licorice. Spicy raspberry flavour complexity with hints of oak" Winestate Magazine, Oct 2020

"It's sweetly fruited and attractively expressed on the nose showing black/blueberry, floral, toasted nut and subtle spice notes, followed by a beautifully supple palate that delivers succulent fruit flavours and fleshy texture, finishing long and silky. Medium-full-bodied and delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2020

Andrew’s Shiraz is a deep purple, with delicious ripe blackberries, plums and a hint of pepper on the palate. This is a full bodied modern Australian wine with an impressive length and a great finish.

It’s a wrap for another season and once again Mother Nature has dished us out a few challenges! Due to an extremely hot January vintage began a week or two later than normal, and once we got picking whites and reds rolled in at a cracking pace. White yields were lower than anticipated whilst reds were on par with previous years. Overall it was another great vintage with bright and fresh whites and beautifully coloured, rich reds.

The grapes for this Shiraz were picked and crushed during the cool of night, thus ensuring the retention of varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout, all of which help to create the signature McPherson style. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction. Softer tannins are also a result of this process, an important feature of the McPherson Shiraz style. Careful attention was also paid to the oak selection for the Shiraz. This wine was aged on French oak for approximately 8 months, giving the wine a noticeable, but not an excessive oak influence. The inclusion of some central Victorian fruit into the blend has boosted both the colour and the intensity of flavour.

A colourful character, Andrew McPherson has spent his working life making wine and has made an incredible contribution to the Australian Wine Industry. Andrew loves a great Shiraz and a great Sunday lunch, combining the two with family and friends on most weekends.

Food Pairing: Try this wine with Char-grilled steak or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne – a perfect match!
