Kirriemuir Show Reserve Barossa Shiraz Viognier 2011

Kirriemuir Show Reserve Barossa Shiraz Viognier 2011

  • Naturally dense and inky, with aromas of black raspberries, crème de cassis, smoke and melted tar.
  • Full bodied with great intensity and concentration and a multi-layered palate.
  • Look out for that trademark Viognier sweetness on the finish too.

Inspired by the great wines of the Northern Rhone, the Cote Roties that grace tables in top Parisian restaurants. It works well for the French to calm the extreme nature of their visceral Syrah (Shiraz to you and I) by the addition of a small volume of unctuous and perfumed Viognier. But in the Barossa, it makes for a very different combination. Here, of all regions in Australia, there's plenty of sunshine. Plenty. This is a classic muscular Barossa Shiraz with a twist - a touch of femininity.

Steve Grimley has vast winemaking experience that spans 3 continents and an unbridled energy that has seen his small, family-owned winery quickly establish an enviable reputation. He's passionate about Single Vineyards and the personalities involved within them and constantly seeking unique parcels of fruit to further expand our bulging portfolio of wines. His immense knowledge of the great wines of the world ensures the continued evolution of our range and is the fuel from which our fire is lit.

"To me, a truly great wine is more about the sizzle than the sausage. I grew up in the Barossa, so wine's pretty much part of your culture from day one. Given our type of business, the styles of wine we make and my individual personality, all these combine to drive us down the 'winemaking way of one'. It's easy to manipulate, but when you leave things alone they just represent what they are - the variety, origin and working patterns, stored in a bottle." - Steve Grimley

Plantagenet Mt Barker Shiraz 2009

Plantagenet Mt Barker Shiraz Australian Red Wine

Type: Syrah / Shiraz

A great Shiraz - the sort that really gives you a tingle on the tongue and a warm rosy glow in the stomach. Jammy flavours at the forefront and a peppery kick to finish things off. The kind of wine that would floor a side of beef in seconds.

This exceptionally classy and rich red is world-class. From Spain but reminiscent of fine Bordeaux, in fact, this is what most Bordeaux wants to taste like. Made using traditional methods in a modern, purpose built winery, only the finest clarets can stand up to it.
