User Reviews for Plantagenet Shiraz Great Southern

Winemaker's Notes:

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire. Fruit is sourced mostly from 36 year old Wyjup and 38 year old Bouvary vineyards with smaller amounts form the 30 year old Charleston vineyard and introducing a portion from our promising young Rocky Horror vineyard, all growing on gravel loams from around the Mt Barker area in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The Plantagenet is a classic Shiraz which opens with blueberry and mulberry, with a dollop of vanilla but with wafts of pepper, nutmeg cloaked with cedar lurking in the background. The palate is strongly varietal, with a structure built for the long haul, with a sumptuous mid palate of succulent plums and blueberries and lingering, mouth filling spice flavours. Enjoy this with a succulent piece of lamb fillet.
