About The Wine
Rick Kinzbrunner has made good use of the Warner Vineyard in Beechworth over the years, carefully carving out powerful, cellar-worthy Shiraz from this impeccable Beechworth site.
The 2015 is a fine release of the Giaconda Warner Vineyard Shiraz. As has been the theme with its predecessors, it's a little wilder and more savoury than the Giaconda Estate Shiraz, the rugged personality of this iconic vineyard shining through.
Only made in limited quantities, this wine sells out quickly each year.
A wine of great character and presence, this is Beechworth Shiraz at its most captivating.
There are few names in Australian wine as revered as those of Giaconda and its founder/owner/winemaker, Rick Kinzbrunner.
Since 1982, Rick has dedicated himself to the pursuit of vinous excellence in the Beechworth region.
They are most known for their incredibly powerful Chardonnay, with Shiraz and Nebbiolo not far behind. Kinzbrunner's signature style is a rare combination of power and finesse.
For the Estate wines, production is extremely limited and they generally sell out upon release.
Giaconda is a special producer that thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of the country's finest domains.
