About The Wine
This dynamic couple were named as the Best New Act at the 2015 Young Guns of Wine Awards.
The story of Year Wines is one of love and family, of serendipity and opportunity. When Luke met Caleigh whilst working as a lowly cellar hand, it was love at first sight. Eight years, two kids and a mortgage later and they are producing some gorgeous small-batch wines together.
Their wines are made in minuscule quantities, often no more than 30 dozen at a time, and their raw quality and undeniable personality make them very highly sort after.
The Year Wines Mataro Shiraz Grenache is beautiful in its simplicity. The small Grenache component lending an aromatic boost to the savoury, more guttural tones of the Mataro, the Shiraz adding the sweet mid-palate richness. The grapes come from two vineyards, Luke and Caleigh looking for balance and drinkability here and they find it in spades.
The three varieties dance together beautifully.
