Shiraz Canberra New South Wales
By one of the most consequential winemakers in the greater Canberra GUI, crafted from Shiraz grown to mature vines at Kyeema, on an elevated granite saddle near Murrumbateman. Reserve Shiraz has enjoyed a series of compelling national trophy wins, including Best Red Sydney Royal Wine Show. Beautifully ripe on the palate, a wine of impressive length, combines intensity and vibrancy with the spice, perfume and elegant structure that are identifiable hallmarks of an exceptional vineyard.
Collector produces extremely small quantities of the most precious wines. Grapes are sourced from a community of growers on the characteristic lean pink granites and reddish shale loams of the Canberra district. The wines are hand made for balance, character and depth of flavour. The exceptional qualities of the source vineyards lie in a splendid mix of granite and shale soils which produce fruit which is perfumed and elegantly structured, savoury, textured and rich. The individual parcels are fermented, pressed gently and matured in a selection of the finest French oak barriques.
