This is tasty stuff, with lots of vibrancy on its side. Really, really enjoyable.
About the Wine
Gary Mills ventures to the Chalmers vineyard in Heathcote for this exciting new addition to his range.
This is biologically farmed Sagrantino, whole bunch fermented, untouched and untampered, barely kissed by oak and sent to bottle in the primacy of youth. It's a red built for max slurpability, the signature rough Sagrantino tannins reigned in by the early picking and gentle handling from Gary.
It's as juicy and spicy as you could want a red wine to be. Don't be afraid to give this a slight chill, that's what it's made for!
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.
