About the Wine
Gary Mills takes on Yarra Valley Cabernet with delicious results.
Sourced from a 35-year-old Yarra vineyard, Mills ferments this as whole berries to make a slurpy, meduim-bodied Claret which is perfect for mid-week drinking.
He's packed the flavour in. Blackcurrant and red fruits with fine silky tannins and a lovely shape in the mouth.
As with all Gary's wines, there's a nervy edge to the wine that gives it a little X-factor.
Great value and fun drinking on offer here from Gaz.
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.
