About the wine

Sam's taken his best-selling Butterfly Effect Shiraz up a notch...
  • Sam spent years making his name as the bona fide superstar of Aussie Shiraz, winning heaps of prestigious medals and the Best Shiraz in Australia trophy in the process.
  • Thanks to Angel funding, he’s now running a shiny winery of his own. And stunning gems like this Reserve Shiraz are his way of saying thank you!
  • Deliciously juicy, spicy and smooth, it’s made using the very best grapes he could get his rock–star hands on.

Best before
Drink now to 2025. I like to drink this wine when it is relatively young and fruit forward, so over the next year or two. But it can be aged for 5 to 7 years age when it will become more savoury and complex.

Serving advice
Serve at 18-20°C. Open/Decant 30 minutes before serving

Food match
We are big fans of the barbecue at home, including having a US made 'Pit Barrel Cooker'. If I could drink this wine with anything, it would be a tender piece of eye fillet steak off the Pit Barrel with some hickory for smoke!

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!
