About The Wine
The 2016 Jamsheed Seville Syrah is a beauty.
The vineyard is at the Southern end of the Yarra Valley and sits atop grey loam soils streaked with volcanic clay. It is cooler in the south than the upper Yarra allowing for more of the spice and perfume characters to ring out of the glass. It's gorgeous.
The essence of power and elegance combined, this is a real treat and a fine example of what the Yarra has to offer in Australia's seemingly endless cannon of Syrah/Shiraz expressions.
Gary Mills' 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 wines of Jamsheed “a revelation”.
With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah for his Jamsheed range, Gary has always been ahead of the curve in creating minimal intervention wines that naturally convey the characteristics of their respective vineyards.
Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.
