About the wine

Seriously classy Aussie Shiraz by Sam
  • Australia produces some of the most scrumptious Shiraz in the world... so when your golden boy Sam tipped us off about some top-notch grapes, we didn’t think twice about giving him the extra funding to snap 'em up.
  • This is as full-flavoured as Shiraz gets. Bags of dark brambly fruit have been supercharged by all that lovely Aussie sun. Sam’s balanced the power-packed fruit with a peppery warmth, a creamy texture and a long jammy finish that just goes on forever.
  • Smooth enough to drink on its own - or it’s perfect with a big bowl of spag bol or a bubbling lamb casserole. Yum.

Best before
Drink now to 2026. This wine will almost have two lives. I like it as a young wine (next 1-2 years) for its primary fruit flavours and supple texture. But some people will put it away for medium term cellaring years (4-6years); the red and purple hue will become increasingly brick red, and those plum and blackberry flavours will decrease with more savoury flavours coming to the front. For me, drink it as a youngster for the lovely fruit flavours, but it has some ability to age and mature into a more savour complex full bodied red!

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18°C / no need to decant

Food match
This is a versatile red and will match with most red meat dishes. At home we drink it with spaghetti Bolognese, or ragu which a favourite of our 14 year old son (the ragu, not the Shiraz!)

Meet the winemaker - Sam Plunkett

  • Legend is a word we sometimes overuse, but in Sam's case, it's true. Over in Oz he’s regarded as one of their greatest living winemakers. Getting on for a thousand medals and trophies to his name, including the daddy of them all – the Best Shiraz in Australia Trophy at the 2010 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.
  • Yet if you met him, you’d probably mistake him for the gardener. He’s one of the most down-to-earth, approachable blokes you’ll ever meet. He wears a beat-up old hat and drives a beat-up old pick up, and when he’s not in the vineyard, you’re likely to find him up a ladder with a wrench in his hand.
  • From being in a pretty sticky situation back in 2011 when he was unexpectedly bought-out by his business partner, Sam has just achieved his lifetime dream; he’s converted an old textile factory into his very own gleaming high-tech winery and it’s all thanks to Angel funding!
