Overview

The quality of wines across various varieties and styles from the 2021 vintage is nothing, short of exceptional. Reds, in particular, showcase intense, rich, and perfectly balanced flavors and colors, making this vintage a true gem for both immediate enjoyment and long-term cellaring. Adequate rainfall in Autumn and another round towards the end of Spring ensured that soil moisture levels were consistently at optimal levels as we approached Summer. Coupled with relatively mild summertemperatures, these conditions fostered vine health. As a result, there was a bountiful setting of grape bunches, and the berry size remained at the ideal range for producing high-quality wine grapes.

Food pairing notes

Australian Shiraz is renowned for its bold and robust characteristics, making it an excellent choice for grilled or roasted meaty dishes while the nose of Shiraz is filled with enticing notes of jammy fruit, dark chocolate, spice, smoke, and black pepper, creating a harmonious interplay of flavours that both complement and contrast the rich flavours of the meats. This combination elevates the overall dining experience to new heights. Here are some recommended dishes that pair well with our Shiraz:

  • Cheese
  • Big beefy stews
  • Chocolate
  • Grilled or roast beef
  • Ribs, spicy sausages, and smoked brisket
  • Roast or grilled lamb
