About The Wine

The excellent value in the Express Winemakers range continues here from young Ryan O'Meera.

This is made from one of Ryan's longest standing vineyard partnerships, a site right on the Southern tip of WA. It produces distinctive Shiraz flavours - meaty, gamey yet with vibrant fruit flavours.

It's makes for great drinking with some interesting points of difference to its South Australian varietal counterparts. Mike Bennie summed it up nicely in his 93 point review, saying it has a, "Sophisticated yet pure feel..."

About Express Winemakers

Express Winemakers is Ryan O'Meara's pint-sized wine operation from the deep south of WA.

From kicking off in 2011, Ryan has assembled a group of top-flight vineyards from around the Great Southern that supply him with top-flight fruit to make his fun and creative range of wines.

There's some serious value to be had in the Express range, from funky skinsy whites, through spicy cool-climate reds and everything in between.

Express Winemakers is a terrific example of the ever-rising tidal wave of young and adventurous WA producers reinventing the west!

The Wine Front

"Game meat, feral stuff, earth and briar, currants, black olives. Wild styles. Love it. Washy in the palate then tightens through a web of tannins. Sophisticated yet pure feel, peppery, spicy, lingering mescal finish. Just love it. Stacks of personality." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
