The Black Pig Clare Valley Shiraz 2013

The Black Pig Clare Valley Shiraz 2013

  • The open and intense Shiraz fruit of this wine, combined with the rich meaty texture would be best served with a rack of lamb.
  • A delicious New World gem - superb quality from the Clare Valley.
  • A fantastic wine, well worth a try - and we promise you won't be disappointed!

The name comes from the winemaker's latest venture, the rearing of big black pigs for making his very own version of Iberico bellota ham. Using fruit sourced from his personal contacts in the Clare Valley, winemaker Steve Grimley has produced a smooth, mouth-filling wine. A revelation if you're more used to the thumping, ostentatious style typical of the more traditional Aussie fare.

Andrew Baker talks about The Black Pig Single Vineyard Clare Valley Shiraz.

"A revelation if you're more used to the thumping, ostentatious style typical of the more traditional Aussie fare."

Steve Grimley

Winemaker: Steve Grimley

Country: Australia

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
