About

The 2016 Nick Spencer Shiraz Grenache is the first red release for Nick under his own private label, and it does not disappoint. This is an equal parts blend of Shiraz and Grenache from Gundagai, a region that Nick believes can produce some of the country's best red wines. However, rather than a focus on region, vineyard or variety, Nick is looking to make a 'house style' for his red blend which falls more into the mould of the great Australian 'Clarets' from days gone by. The 2016 release is fragrant, energetic and finely structured. Gary Walsh awarded it 93+ points, with only a tiny amount released from Nick for his debut, this will not be around for long. "I am very proud of this wine." - Nick Spencer

What it Tastes Like

"Almost a rose oil perfume here, over spice, ferns, fruit pastille, and red and black fruits. Medium bodied, blackcurrant and blackberry pastille, firm almost bony tannin structure running through it, cool acidity and a delicious sweet finish laced with dried herb perfume, and dusted with fine tannin. Goes very well now, though I think it’ll be better with a couple of years cellaring." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
