"Beautifully ripe and perfumed, the inviting bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, violet, olive and roasted nut aromas with a hint of pepper spice. It’s supple and succulent on the palate with rounded mouthfeel and silky tannins, making it soothing and comforting. At its best: now to 2029" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2021

The DtG Shiraz is a beautiful dark garnet colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins.

The DtG Shiraz is created by sourcing and harvesting only the very best premium Victorian fruit. Wines from this region typically produce characters of elegance, power and beauty with staying power. The wine was fermented with wild yeast, in open pots, hand plunged twice a day for 10 days. As soon as primary fermentation was complete, the wine was racked into 500L French Oak Puncheons (80% New Oak, 20% 1 Year Old), where it was left to go through malolactic fermentation. With minimal intervention, the viticulture/winemaking was more important than ever.

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.

Food Pairing: This is a special occasion wine. Drink with like-minded wine lovers who enjoy sticking it to the man! Take a moment to admire the gorgeous colour of the wine, then it’s a perfect match to charcuterie and cheese, char-grilled steak, or a meat pie.

Nice elegant shiraz. Slight hint of jammieness in there that was not in the 2018 brew. Maybe someone told Gary...
