All Saints Shiraz 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Shiraz is Australia's favourite red grape and a Rutherglen treasure. We are lucky enough to have very old vines, with all the intensity and depth of flavour that they bring. Shiraz is a pleasure to work with because of the way it carries flavours and aromas specific to the region, and even the vineyard block, and layers these on top of a base of rich, soft plummy fruit. Back in the Old World there is an assumption that the local wines and local foods go together. We are beginning to see those synergies develop here and one of the great matches is our Shiraz with locally reared Rutherglen Lamb.

Established by two enterprising Scots, George Sutherland Smith and John Banks. The castle was built in the 1880's and based on the design of The Castle of May, complete with turrets and tower. The castle is classified by the ‘Historic Buildings Council’, along with two other Estate buildings, the former bottling hall & cellar and the Chinese Dormitory. The former bottling hall and cellar now houses The Indigo Cheese Co. (est. December 2005), and the Chinese Dormitory, built around 100 years ago, is the last remaining example of its type. The Great Hall, our main wine storage area, is lined with huge 100-year-old oak casks, filled with rare Tokays and Muscats. Some of these fortified wines are up to 80 years old and will form the base of future blends for years to come. The wines are amongst Australia's and the world’s greatest, internationally extolled for their richness and "lusciousness". All Saints Estate won the first gold medal for Australian wine in 1873 at the London International Exhibition and continues to win trophies and receive rave reviews today. Read less
