  • 2016 Shiraz

    RRP $45.00 Club price $40.00
    Our little vineyard has something special about its Shiraz - it produces an amazing lifted perfume aroma style, with hints of spice. Coupled with great palate intensity and superb length of flavour, this is a well-balanced wine, consistent with the classic Hunter Valley style of Shiraz. We're looking forward to how this wine develops – after two years in bottle, spicy aromatics and full berry flavours abound. Our 2016 Shiraz is a winner already, with two silver medals under its belt. Throw beef, venison or duck at this, and sit back and be surprised! Drink now or cellar another 5-15 years – it's a shame we have very little of this left.

  • 2017 The Mike Shiraz

    RRP $35.00 Club price $30.00
    It was a ripper of a vintage in 2017! A very hot and dry season, combined with a later harvest, gives a complex Shiraz with notes of black fruit and cassis, bringing a full and concentrated flavour. Bottled in July 2018 (and named after the bloke who made it!), this wine is developing remarkable flavours in bottle – a very grown-up Shiraz! Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years.

  • 2018 Blue Fence Shiraz

    RRP $35.00 Club price $30.00
    AVAILABLE MID/LATE OCTOBER 2019 – probably around Heather's birthday! Only recently bottled (July 22) this is another terrific Shiraz from Mike De Iuliis. Mike played with a combo of old and new French oak to get max flavour from our grapes, and this wine is already showing lots of heavy dark berry fruit flavours. If you drop by our cellar shed we MIGHT be persuaded to let you try it, otherwise we'll put it on for tasting in mid/late October. This one is def going to mature into a real standout!
