We create wines that are generous and full-flavoured – for people who want more intensity and sensation from their wine experience. George Wyndham became the father of Australian Shiraz when he planted the country’s first commercial shiraz vineyard in 1830. It was here, in his vineyard and house that is now a Heritage Listed National Trust Treasure, that he dedicated his life to creating full-flavoured wines.  This proud legacy of innovation and dedication endures at Wyndham Estate, where knowledge and experience is built upon by each generation of winemakers. A wider range of distinctively full-flavoured wines are crafted today. Still, Shiraz remains the signature variety of Wyndham Estate - the birthplace of Australian Shiraz. Read less

A great food wine with classic smooth fruit, oak and tannins... I think there is a good amount of good Hunter Valley fruit... a mini-me of a good wine... 89/100

Generous, smooth, silky and opulent – some of the epithets that comes to mind in describing this wine. Nice not overtly spicy and big unlike some other Aussie shiraz. Gentle with nice tannins to supplement rather than overwhelm.

Excellent shiraz for the money. Lots of plum and spice with enough oak to really fill it out.

ColourVibrant ruby with crimson hues.BouquetSpicy cherry and plum fruits lift from the glass. Secondary hints ofeucalypt, dark chocolate and vanilla bean harmonise with the fruits.PalateRipe blackberry and plum fruits dominate initially with nuances ofvanillan oak and chocolate in support. Soft velvety tannins give thewine persistence and length. The flavours are long lasting and youare left mesmerised awaiting the next mouthful
