About The Wine

"Fin de La Terre" translates to "The End of the Earth" - winemaker Shaun Crinion says it takes so long to drive to this vineyard during vintage feels like you're about to reach the edges of our planet.

The drive is worth it. The Shiraz fruit that comes from this Steels Creek vineyard is stunning.

The 2017 vintage was fermented as 100% whole bunches, Shaun thinks the combination of sweet fruit generated from cab mac (carbonic maceration or whole berry ferment) needs the spice and architecture that the stalks provide to be a well balanced wine.

This is a beautiful, elegant representation of Yarra Syrah.

About Dappled

Dappled is a producer to get on early.  Owner/winemaker Shaun Crinion has a mountain of winemaking experience from round the globe, culminating in recent years with the establishment of this, his own label. 

Shaun's focus is in expressing the regionality of the Yarra Valley through simply gorgeous Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, sourced from a range of Upper and Lower Yarra vineyards.

Through his vineyard connections, brilliantly astute winemaking and a desire to keep his wines approachable to all, the value on offer in the Dappled range is second to none.  

James Halliday named Dappled as his Best New Winery in his 2018 Wine Companion and it's not hard to see why.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

If you want to see the the difference between Shiraz and Syrah, check this out. Plum, aniseed, white pepper, black cherry, such a vibrant perfume. It's bang-on medium bodied, riddled with exotic spice. Sweet black cherry flavours. Ultra fine tannin. Crisp, a little crunch through the finish. Nicely settled acidity. Moreish as. Yum. - Different Drop Wine Team
