2017 Curious Winemaker Shiraz

2017 Curious Winemaker Shiraz


Peerick Vineyard, Pyrenees. Hand crafted by our team of Curious Winemakers. Fermented, pressed, aged and bottled at our wine bar in the heart of Ballarat.

Notes from Andrew Graham Australian Wine Review

From Johnno Harris of Mitchell Harris, this is something of a winemakers project that includes 50% whole bunches and 5% Viognier. It smells very much like cool climate Syrah – soccer ball home, coffee grains, pepper steak, the mid weight openly fruity and slightly hammy palate driven by whole bunch spice, the mid palate juicy before a slightly raw finish. Despite all that it’s not a heavy red, more an approachable drink. There’s a good balance between sloshy fruit and peppery spice here and I quite enjoyed drinking it.

Best drinking: Now to ten years. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13.5%, $25. Would I buy it? I’d share a bottle.
