Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine.

Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent.

Shaw Smith Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Adelaide Hills South Australia
Shiraz grapes in the Adelaide Hills ripen slowly and evenly resulting in spicey, intense expressions in the fruit. Shaw + Smith is a star performer, sourced from the carefully managed warmer sub-area of Macclesfield which provides structure and richness. The cooler climes of Balhannah yield a truly exciting new wave Shiraz with loads of clean pepper, spiceyness, concentration and palate weight to match. A brilliantly structured wine with great concentration of fruit flavours, a modern Australian expression with less reliance on oak, vibrant and bright.
Available in cases of 6
Case of 6
$263.50
Sourced from the warmer, drier parts of the Adelaide Hills around Macclesfield and from low yielding vines at Balhannah. Generally soil structures are shallow red/brown loam over schist and clay. High density vine plantings are hand pruned, vertical shoot positioned canopies. Yields are restricted to 2kg per vine, essential in achieving concentration. A small batch approach is adopted throughout the winemaking. Hand picked whole bunches and whole berries are inoculated and vinified in small fermenters, regularly hand plunged and pumped over. Upon completion of malolactic, components are treated to a year's maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French barriques and larger format oak.
Deep red with bright robes. Aromas of red fruits, pepper and spice. A palate brimming with bramble, layered and long, a fruit filled savoury wine, showing great purity of character, currants and spice, background clove and black pepper notes, reined in by soft and fine, ample tannins. A match to fine Italian and French faire, braises and cheese.
