About

Sierra Reed has spent years as a vagabond as she travelled the world soaking up as much wine knowledge as possible. She has settled in Western Victoria, intent on crafting small batches of intricate wines with as few adornments as possible. This is her Knife Edge Shiraz sourced from the Hyde Park vineyard in the Grampians. She knows her way around a Victorian Shiraz from her days at Mount Langi Ghiran and it shows in this release. A quarter was fermented as whole bunches, all seeing larger format oak for maturation. A deft touch applied here. The 2015 is a supple, feathery style of Shiraz replete with clean fruit and shot with spice. It's a wine built for the lovers of more elegant, streamlined reds, more about subtle pleasures than raw power. After trying this release, Mike Bennie called hers "A project to watch...", and we wholeheartedly agree.

What it Tastes Like

"Slides and glides around the palate with supple texture, sprinkle of peppery spice, concentration of flavour without heft. It smells regional and of Aussie bush, pepper, red and black berries, fennel and earthiness. Darker fruits to taste but a rise of glossy acidity lifts and pulls the wine long. Tannin is soft and sighing, but does provide shape. Beautiful drinking here." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
