- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Jamsheed is kicking goals left, right and centre, and owner/winemaker Gary Mills' 'Harem Series' wines are just plain fun to drink. None more so than 'Le Blanc Plonk' - a unique little Riesling that is as quirky as it is refreshing. Each year this wine seems to improve and become more and more 'serious', and the '16 is a ripper. The fruit comes from a vineyard in Mansfield, it is barrel-fermented, left on its lees for 8 months and then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Not your standard free-run Rizza! The resulting wine is extremely aromatic, quite textural in the palate and then finishes fresh as a daisy. It's interesting but also just immediately enjoyable, and is top value. Giddy up!
What it Tastes Like
Lemons, limes and bright tropical aromas jump out of the glass. The palate is lively and zippy no doubt, but has a lovely mouthfeel and texture at the same time. A subtle nutty toasty edge adds interest to the bright fruit flavours, with citrusy acidity cleansing and lingering. So refreshing, so unique, so delicious!

About the Producer
Gary Mills is a rockstar of Victorian wine. His Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Campbell Mattinson labelled him “a leading producer”, Jamie Good called him “the new face of Australian wine” and Matthew Jukes went as far as to call the wine of Jamsheed “a revelation”. With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah for his Jamsheed range, Gary has been one of the loudest advocates for the inclusion of whole bunch ferments and was ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards. Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.
