Jamsheed Garden Gully Syrah 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Few wine experiences will match 2012 Jamsheed Garden Gully Shiraz: 96 points from the UK's leading Wine Publication, Decanter, who selected it as the 2nd highest scoring Aussie red from all of last year. It boasts single vineyard Syrah vines that were planted in the 1890's…creating a wine that borders on the sublime! Add to that today's Free Shipping Offer, the time to act is now: THIS has to be tasted to be believed. The 2012 Jamsheed 'Garden Gully' Syrah showcases the genius of owner/winemaker Gary Mills, former winemaker at Ridge Vineyards alongside Paul Draper! Only 310 cases of this incredible release were produced, yet we were able to secure a microscopic allocation from the local importer. The 2012 Garden Gully nailed a 96 point rating from Decanter, calling it "deep, soulful and superb" and a 95 point rating from James Halliday, "It draws you in". The wine is already showing brilliantly right now with more than a decade of cellaring potential ahead of it.

Yarra Yering Pty Ltd:
Wine was grown in Victorias Yarra Valley from the mid 1800’s through to the 1920’s and was a principal export of the new colony. The industry was halted in the 1920’s not by phylloxera as many seem to think but by the economics of the day, changing tastes and the high price of wool.

Wine was grown in Victorias Yarra Valley from the mid 1800’s through to the 1920’s and was a principal export of the new colony. The industry was halted in the 1920’s not by phylloxera as many seem to think but by the economics of the day, changing tastes and the high price of wool. It would need a visionary to re establish winemaking in the Valley and in 1969 one came along. Dr Bailey Carrodus was ideally qualified to become a great vigneron. A degree in botany, another in winemaking and a doctorate earned at Oxford for research into plant physiology, combined with a passion for great wine and a fiercely independent mind equipped him well. In 1969 after a long search for the perfect site Dr Carrodus planted 12 hectares of vines at the foot of the Warramate Hills. The gentle slope with its northerly aspect and deep grey silty loam shot through with bands of gravel fulfilled all of his requirements. Good drainage, all day exposure to the warm sun, and enough elevation from the valley floor to avoid the spring frosts. He named his vineyard Yarra Yering and in 1973 produced the first commercial wine made in the Yarra Valley since 1921. Read less
