An impressive rich Shiraz with plenty of character from a great year, with all the hallmarks of Giaconda's Graceful toucth in tact.
Warner Vineyard Shiraz, Beechworth 2008
Established by Rick Kinzbrunner in the early 1970's, this beguilingly ethereal vineyard has emerged as one of Australia’s great wines. Capturing the soul of the Beechworth landscape and the character of an exceptional vineyard site. The vineyard, located in a small valley, is minute and planted at an altitude of 400 metres. The lean mineralized granitic loams over decomposed gravel and clay allow both sustained water release and naturally regulated vines. Kinzbrunner is an instinctive winemaker who rolls with the personality and variations of each vintage. His attention to detail and astonishing mastery of barrel work brings an extra dimension to all his wines, white and red.
