Winemaker Notes

Blackberry and mulberry fruits with licorice and cracked pepper sing of Central Victorian Shiraz; a touch of Viognier thrown in for aromatic lift. Immediately approachable in its youth, this regional benchmark has the structure and concentration to age gracefully.

Critical Acclaim

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Opaque ruby. Pungent red and dark berries on the nose, with a suave floral quality adding vivacity. Spicy raspberry and cherry flavors become sweeter with air and supple tannins gather strength on the back end. Maintains focus and energy through a long, juicy finish. This is an outstanding value.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The purple-colored 2006 Shiraz contains 2% Viognier. Fragrant and expressive it offers up a nose of scorched earth, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe and smooth textured, it has excellent depth and length. It will benefit from another two years of cellaring and be at its best from 2010 to 2018.

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Bright and lively, with a distinct eucalyptus character breezing through the berry and spice flavors. Balanced toward refinement, not power. Best from 2010 through 2016.

Balgownie Estate, , Australia
Bendigo Vineyards Balgownie Estate's Bendigo vineyard was originally planted by local pharmacist Stuart Anderson in 1969. The initial plantings consisted of five acres each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz and these varieties are still the mainstay of the vineyard today. At Balgownie Estate we subscribe to the philosophy that wine quality is made in the vineyard. Our vineyard management aims to achieve a balance between vegetative growth and moderate yields. We believe healthy vines produce healthy vibrant fruit. The vineyard is planted on alluvial clay soils that are low in fertility but provide good moisture retention. These soils naturally limit yields and produce grapes with depth and intensity. The Bendigo Climate is characterised by its continental climate with warm summers and cold winters. The warm days and cool nights during the ripening period are ideal for producing intense and age-worthy red wines.

Yarra Valley: Balgownie Estate's Yarra Valley vineyards were planted in 2003 to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir the two varieties we believe are best suited to the region. The Yarra Valley's cool climate is ideal for these Burgundian varieties, producing grapes with intensity and balance
