2022 Shiraz

This range is designed to showcase Christian’s passion for experimentation with new varieties and wine styles that suit the Vine Vale microclimate.

Tasting Notes

A nose of rich dark fruits, boysenberry, Turkish delight and some pencil shavings. Violet, clove and blackberry all feature on the palate. This vintage has velvet like tannins and lingering cherry ripe flavours to finish.



Tasting Notes


Dark fruits, red licorice, some mocha with faint black pepper tones on the nose. Rich palate but tending more to the red fruit spectrum, raspberry, ripe cherries, satsuma plum with just enough Viognier (3%) to lift the fruit from the glass. ‘Black Tea’ like tannins feature with some grip to round out the palate.


Highly aromatic with red fruits, musk and spice. Medium palate weight with, raspberry, red licorice, spice and cherry cola, all interwoven.  A minuscule % of viognier adds depth to the flavour profile. Soft tannins and a core of raspberry flow through to the finish.


Dense nose with rich dark fruits, hints of graphite and earthy spice. Hallmark Vine Vale stone fruit, violet, clove and blackberry on the palate. Subtle and balanced with a long smooth finish. Co- fermented goodness.


Scents of dark fruit, some graphite and charcuterie on the nose. The palate shows off hallmark Vine Vale Shiraz characters of violet, stone fruits, clove and gentle apricot tones from the Viognier component. Finishes with good focus and grip. Will only get better with age.
