Place: Pyrenees, Victoria
Named in 1973 after the Scottish Highlands town of his ancestors by founder Ewan Jones, Dalwhinnie has had a long and illustrious history of producing some of the Pyrenees region’s best chardonnay, shiraz, and cabernet.
This is one of their school night wines from the original vineyard. Hand-harvested then wild fermented (40% whole bunch) then pressed after twelve days maceration into old, large oak for a twelve month nap. A 21st century styling of shiraz, fine and delicate given the potential power.
