About

Graillot is a collaboration between wine importer Robert Walters and iconic Northern Rhone Valley winemaker Alain Graillot. After importing Graillot’s wines for many years, Robert decided to utilise the Frenchman’s Shiraz/Syrah growing expertise to make wine from the rich soils of Heathcote.

The release of the 2015 vintage sees young Yarra champion winemaker Luke Lambert continue his run as Head Winemaker for the project wines in partnership with Maxime Graillot, Alain’s son. The 2015 ‘Syrah No.2’. is some of their finest collaborative work to date under the Graillot label.

It’s a brilliant example of modern cool climate Australian Shiraz. As Campbell Mattinson noted in his 95 point review, “It plays a Siren song for the Heathcote region as a whole… Just simply beautiful.”

Where European inspired elegance meets Australian flavour.

What It Tastes Like

“This is a fabulous shiraz/syrah. One sip and I was hooked. It bursts with aroma, is rich with fruit, comes laden with all manner of spice notes and extends gorgeously out and through the finish. It’s a complete wine. It plays a Siren song for the Heathcote region as a whole. It has texture, graphite, nut and herb notes oozing from its pores. Blue and black berried fruits. Just simply beautiful.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
