About the wine

Seriously smooth drop from a bona-fide superstar of Aussie Shiraz
  • Sam spent years making his name as the star 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

Serving advice
No need to decant, but if you can I think it tastes best a little cooler than room temperature - say 16-18C.

Food match
A great drink with anything off the bbq - ribs or smoked brisket if you are feeling fancy, otherwise a humble sausage wrapped in bread would be a treat washed down with a glass or two!

Allergy advice
Contains Sulphites. Always check the label.

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!
