About the Wine

The Jamsheed Garden Gully Syrah comes from one of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in Victoria. The Garden Gully Vineyard was planted in the 1890's with cuttings from the Best's Old Clone Shiraz on the same famous Concongella soils that Best's occupies.

The 2015 vintage was made with 100% whole bunches, natural winemaking bringing to bottle a beautiful wine here from Gary Mills. This is a more medium-bodied and tempered style of Garden Gully Syrah, perhaps the most seductive of Gary's 2015 Syrahs.

A different expression of the region but one that is simply delicious to drink. Due to frost there were only 40 dozen made in 2015.

About Jamsheed

Gary Mills is a modern star 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 Goode 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.

On top of his much sought-after Syrahs, Gary produces excellent textural white wines from varieties including Riesling and Roussanne, and is never afraid to innovate with his quirky and delicious entry level 'Harem' label. 

Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Vibrant red fruit, licorice, wild fresh thyme and mint and brown spice. It's meaty and succulent with fine mineral tannin. Sticks to medium-bodied territory. It's quite silky and yet wild with silk sheets of tannin wrapped around the vibrant, pulsating fruit. Such charisma in the glass. Great idiosyncratic Syrah. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From the Producer

Handpicked from vines planted in the 1890's in the Great Western region of Central Victoria. The Syrah vines are 'Old Best's' clone on the 'Concongella' soil profile (clay over ironstone) and are fermented as 100% whole bunches in a 500L puncheon with the head removed with indigenous yeasts and 50 day extended maceration.

No acid, enzymes or additives other than a small amount of sulphur dioxide was used in production. The wine is then racked to 1 and 2 year old hogsheads and puncheons and left sur lees for 15 months before being gravity racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Due to severe frost in the early growing season total production of this wine is 40 dozen.
