Winemaker Notes

The dense, rich color indicates the power and intensity of fruit, with complexity and elegance the truly distinguishing characters of this wine. Bright blackberry, maraschino cherry and satsuma plum aromas are enriched with anise, liquorice and subtle roasted spice from ageing in French oak. Succulent texture and supple tannins extend throughout the palate, and red liquorice flavors provide a long, distinctive finish.

Fruit for the Victorian Shiraz is sourced from several cool climate regions including the Yarra Valley, Heathcote and Bendigo with each region providing complexity to the blend. Yarra Valley Shiraz grown on sedimentary soils around our own Green Point vineyard is typically fragrant and spicy. Heathcote Shiraz grown on the deep red soils of the Mt Camel Range is bright and deeply colored with fresh blackberry flavors. Bendigo Shiraz grown on alluvial soils contributes savory tannins with hints of eucalypt and the inland climate of the northern foothills of the Great Dividing Range provides Shiraz with rich structure.

Wine Enthusiast
Very clean and correct, from the pure aromas of fresh cherries to the medium body and supple tannins. The result is an easy-drinking, fresh-fruited wine that just hints at darker fruit on the palate and boasts a clean, mouthwatering finish.

Green Point
In the 1840s, when the Yarra Valley in Victoria was first settled by Europeans, they observed that one particular spur of land leading down to the Yarra river always remained green longer as summer advanced. They called it "Green Point." It stayed green because the deep weathered siltstone soils on this spur retain moisture longer than other areas in the valley. These soils, in combination with the Yarra Valley's cool climate, proved to be an ideal "terroir" for grape growing and grapes have been grown on these slopes since the 1850s.

Moët & Chandon acquired the site in 1986 and today it is where they grow high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for Green Point still wines. They have selected other sites in Victoria and the Yarra Valley that provide the ideal marriage of "terroir" with variety for the other Green Point varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Shiraz).
