About The Wine
Peter Graham makes a very good fist at Shiraz from the Beechworth region.
This wine comes for the declassified fruit grown for the Domenica Shiraz. Graham makes this with the same care and attention that he gives his Domenica Shiraz and the elite Ergo Sum release. The fruit grown organically, the wine made with minimal interference.
This offers brilliant value for money. It's medium-bodied, spicy, and open for business straight away. Buy this and drink it while you wait for the Domenica Shiraz to mature. You'll be glad you did.
Peter Graham is one of Beechworth's most thoughtful and talented winemakers. From his small plot of land on the Beechworth "Golden Mile", Pete crafts articulate and powerful wines with a gentle hand.
He farms his vineyard organically, though uncertified, with great care. The quality of fruit it yields is first class. In the winery, everything is moved via gravity. Patience is a virtue that Pete definitely possesses. No wine is released until it's 'ready'.
The Nebbiolo is one of the country's benchmarks. The Chardonnay is always in high demand given Pete's history as assistant winemaker at Giaconda. The Shiraz is the very model of modern Australian Shiraz; a wine with both power and refinement.
As Mike Bennie once noted:"If you’re into the new wave of truefine wine producers of Australia you should be onto, should get onto, Domenica. Classics in the making. Rising high."
