About The Wine

Here's a teeny tiny production Syrah (Shiraz) from a burgeoning Beechworth project.

Viticulturalist Fiona Wigg was vineyard manager at Seppelts in Great Western. It was there she developed a love of Shiraz. When she wanted to plant her own vineyard, only one region would do.

She planted the Madman's Gully vineyard on an the site of an old gold mine in 2009. She asked one of NE Vic's great winemaking talents in Jo Marsh of Billy Button to make the wine. It's a winning combination.

This is classic Beechworth Shiraz/Syrah - powerful, spicy, luxurious - but without the big ticket price tag that Beechworth GI usually demands.

A bargain if you love wines from this gem region of Australian wine.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"The wine is medium bodied with a rich, ruby colour. Spice and raspberries are obvious on the nose and the palate is warm and balanced with fine, elegant tannins." - Madman's Gully Wines

Additional Info

From The Producer

After a warm summer, grapes ripened earlier reaching harvest in late February rather than the third week in March resulting in a short and sharp vintage. The 2016 Syrah is 100% estate grown and our fourth vintage.

Grapes were allowed to cold soak after destemming before ferment began with wild yeasts. Approximately 20% of the fruit remained as whole bunches during fermentation. Once ferment was complete, the wine was left to develop in French oak for 14 months before bottling.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
Bottle Size : 750ml
