About The Wine
A very special wine release here from Jamsheed main man Gary Mills.
The 2017 Jamsheed ASRC Syrah is a lovely Yarra Valley Syrah made exclusively for a charitable cause. All profits from this wine will be donated directly the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, an organisation that assists Asylum Seekers with a range of services; from legal aid to medical assistance, education, vocational support and much more. It's an admirable organisation.
We at Different Drop are proud to be able to support Gary in this venture. Last year we helped Gary raise over $27,000 for the charity. And it's a very tasty wine, to boot.
Gary only produced a small amount and it won't be available for long. A heartfelt thank you to all who purchase this, your donations are going to a great cause. There really is no better way to spend $20 on a bottle of wine.
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.
