Green Point:
Green Point was established by the Champagne house Moët & Chandon over 20 years ago in the Yarra Valley, in the southeastern state of Victoria. Cool ocean breezes create ideal conditions for the grapes to develop ripe fruit flavors, while retaining their elegance, finesse, and complexity.

Rich dark red with opulent aroma of cherries and dark chocolate. On the palate is focused, rich and multi-layered with commanding tannins and great strength.

It opened up eventually, but was none too subtle.

Bright and juicy, with an interesting waxy edge to the blueberry and currant fruit, finishing on the crisp side and lingering especially well. Drink now through 2011. 8,000 cases imported.

The Green Point Shiraz 2006 wine is 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.

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.

Rich berry fruit and a touch of white pepper in an easy-to-drink, well rounded style for those who enjoy their Shiraz with soft tannins.
