About Piping Shrike:
This Shiraz is produced at Charles Cimicky. Charles Cimicky produces rich, voluptuous, generous
wines with superb balance. Apart from minor drip irrigation in January and February, the vines are
dry grown, cover-cropped and organically fertilized. Now in his late forties, Charles Cimicky is one
of the most quality-driven, meticulous winemakers in South Australia. Piping Shrike Shiraz is named for the Australian magpie whose territorial diligence ensures the protection of the Barossa
Shiraz grapes from thieving blackbirds.
