Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz – This wine has been blended to compliment real food with wines of striking colour and elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a finish to persist with the wildest flavours. Winner in the “Judged with food” at the Sydney International Wine Competition and an “Outstanding” from James Halliday.

The vintage of 2015 was a year, with warm growing conditions producing red wines of intense colour and flavour. We decided to blend our Strathbogie shiraz with parcels of fruit from other regions in order to achieve the style we seek to craft our Ladies who Shoot their Lunch wine. We were also able to harvest some fruit from what may be the last ever shiraz from the iconic Mt Helen vineyard. These vines are infected with Phylloxera and had an incredibly low yield of less than one tonne to the acre in 2015. The intense and elegant characteristics of this fruit combined with our Upton Run fruit create a wine with the perfume, texture and balance to match wild game – and is a perfect example of a powerful cool climate spicy shiraz.

This wine is deep crimson in colour with hints of purple at the rim. On the nose, intense lifted aromas of ripe red berries play with notes of violet, pepper and dark chocolate. The palate is full bodied with complex forest fruits, spice and velvety tannins leading to an elegant, long finish.

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz pairs perfectly with roasted venison. It has been blended to complement real food with wines of striking colour, elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a finish to persist with the wildest flavours.

It can be kept cellared for the next ten years.

Fowles Wine

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.)


Wine production only started in the late 1960s when Alan Cuthbertson established Delatite. He also established Murrundindi in the 1970s. More have followed in the 1990s. The climate if regarded as cool and is favourable for production of premium quality wines. The main wine styles: Whites – Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay; Red – Cabernet/Merlot blends.
