Fowles Wine comes from the very cool-climate of the Strathbogie Ranges in Victoria. Amongst other innovations, they have pioneered wine specifically blended to match wild game. Whilst winning many of the best ‘traditional’ awards in the Australian wine scene and being named a “Winery to Watch” by Wine Spectator, Fowles Wine has a culture of doing things differently! (They are also the largest winery in Australia controlled by Gen Y.)
The modern wine history began in the mid 1970s with Dr Peter Tisdall establishing the Mount Helen vineyard. Followed by Plunketts’s in the late 1970s. Since then the region has expanded steadily. The climate is regarded as cool. The main wine styles: White – Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc; Red – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.
This Shiraz is deep cherry red. On the nose black pepper, plum and cinnamon play with nutmeg and subtle oak notes. The Palate is full of ripe fruits and a medley of complex spices integrated oak that leads to a velvety long finish.
