Beechworth, North East


Shiraz 2016

Cool climate character; more Northern Rhone than Australia. As with all Savaterre, this is built to age but all the elements are there. Quite green/stemmy, but enough dark berry fruit, rosemary, and spice to give balance. Better in 5 yrs but wanted to like this more. — 18 days ago

Genesis Syrah 2002

My treat for Father’s Day. One of my favorite Australian Shirazes. Fruit purity and exotic spice on a pristine acid/tannin backbone. Gorgeous! — 3 months ago

Beechworth Shiraz 2014

Been dying to try this. Continues my love affair with Beechworth Shiraz. Stunning wine, so elegant. Layers of restrained fruit and spice balanced with elegance and grace. So velvety!
I have another bottle which I will keep for 10 more years as this was a puppy.
