2016 Fighting Gully Road Shiraz

This is a damn fine wine... It’s a ripper. The price is exceptionally fair.

About The Wine

This is one of the best pound-for-pound Shiraz buys in the Beechworth region today.

The fruit was grown by 2017 Gourmet Traveller WINE Viticulturalist of the Year Mark Walpole on a vineyard planted in 1997. Walpole is one of North-East Victoria's legitimate guru grape-growers. Under his tender care, this vineyard is really hitting its straps.

The wine was brought to bottle by former Young Gun of Wine winner and regular Wine Show Trophy-lifter, Adrian Rodda. This partnership is a powerful combination of experience and young talent, this might be their finest wine to date.

 This is a vibrant, full-bodied, spicy, cool-climate Shiraz with plenty of power. For those familiar with the going price for Beechworth Shiraz, you'll know that at just $35 a bottle, this is one of the best value for money Shiraz in the region.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"The wines of Fighting Gully Road have always been good but in recent times they’ve taken significant steps forward by my reckoning.Exhibit A. This is a damn fine wine. It’s savoury, stringy and structured but it just provides so much pleasure. Anise and black cherries, white pepper and deli meat flavours are the guts of it, though florals are important here too. It’s a ripper. The price is exceptionally fair." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Classical cool climate Shiraz, showing spice, white pepper and red berry fruits. A full, yet medium bodied palate with very fine grained tannins. Our fourth Shiraz from the Fighting Gully Road site has a tannin structure that will ensure that it will with the help of screw cap closure age well for the next decade or more.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Bottle Size : 750ml
