Nick Haselgrove Wines is home to the best that Australian wine has to offer – value, quality, providence and alluring appeal for wine drinkers.  A rich winemaking history, the wines today represent the regions they come from. Clean, distinct and well balanced, far exceeding your expectations of well-priced Australia Shiraz. 

A mixture of vinification techniques, touched by tradition, are used to capture each vineyard’s character. The wine is matured separately in oak vats and tanks with a smaller portion in small barrels before blending. The aim is to produce a fresh style of Shiraz with structure and supple tannin. To achieve this a small amount of old vine grenache (<5%) of a lighter style was used in the final assemblage.

Tasting Notes

Fruit forward and immediately appealing with dark berry, roasted nut, olive and mixed spice aromas, it's juicy and smooth in the mouth displaying silky texture and fine tannins, leading to a delectably appealing finish.

Medium bodied, fresh and crisp on the palate, with bright acidity and persistent length of fruit. 
This vintage has produced full strong tannic yet fleshy wines that have medium term cellaring potential.

Delicious, with some agebility. Drink now or hold for 5-7 years.
