Giaconda Estate Shiraz
Giaconda is a winery that needs no introduction. We are amongst a lucky few who receive a small annual allocation of the range from this iconic Beechworth producer, and they won’t be around for long. While we are on the subject of Beechworth – if it is not on top of your list of winery regions to visit, do yourself a favour and put it in the mix. This Victorian high country town is picture perfect, with pretty cafes and quaint antique shops – it’s a truly delightful spot to while away a long weekend.
Dark red to coal black in colour. Notes of damp forest floor combine with a zephyr of savoury meats and campfire smoke, with raspberry and star anise notes lifted by the whole-bunch component. Round and rich with a satisfying fruit-laden palate of wild berries coming to the fore. The tannins are powder-fine and convey red fruits with a twist of spiced vanilla oak, long on the palate. Evocative and immensely complex, this finishes with a strong mineral and graphite impact. A wine that is destined to have a long future.
Strictly limited stock available – a limit of one bottle per order applies.
