McWilliams On The Grapevine Shiraz

McWilliams On The Grapevine Shiraz

The On the Grapevine range is an innovative retro-inspired range when life was simple, products had an ingrained quality and people sought the better things in life. This Shiraz is no exception, a flavoursome wine of black cherry and raspberry balanced with subtle tannins that make it the perfect complement to BBQ meats or cheese.

On The Grapevine Shiraz combines the intense dark fruit aromas of plum and forest berries, with hints of spice and vanilla. On the palate it is rich and smooth, with lashes of dense ripe fruit and soft tannins. Additionally, barrel maturation in premium American and French oak adds further character to this full bodied Shiraz.

Perfect with barbecued meals, rich dishes, cheese platters and dark chocolate.

McWilliam's Family Winemakers

“Few have helped shape the evolution of the Australian wine industry like McWilliam’s Wines. From humble beginnings on the outskirts of Corowa in 1877, the philosophy of putting quality of fruit first has ensured that McWilliam’s continues to be one of Australia’s most popular, respected and iconic wineries.
We believe that good wines are made by people, not corporations. With six consecutive generations of winemakers and over 135 years of experience, the wines we make are more than just quality, award-winning wines. They are wines that tell the story of our family and a century long love affair with winemaking. “

New South Wales

Australia’s first vines were planted in New South Wales on the Farm Cove foreshore. The first commercial wine was made there, and the first wine exported to England – by Gregory Blaxland in 1823. Given the size and climate diversity of NSW and its large population, it is surprising that the state does not play a bigger role in Australian wine. It is a state of great contrasts, from the huge, flat expanse of irrigated vineyards in the Riverina area near Griffith to the high uplands of Mudgee in the north. The Hunter Valley is the most recognised region within NSW, famous for its long-lived Semillons and unique styled Shiraz. Riverina is the largest wine-producing region. The more recent viticultural developments are within the regions along the Great Dividing Range: Mudgee, Orange, Cowra, Hilltops etc. There is much promise and interest in the wines now being produced within these regions.

Shiraz

flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
