About The Wine
This is a perfect mid-week red.
Will and Simon Gilbert made this by blending Shiraz, Sangiovese and Barbera and a few other bits and pieces grown in Orange.
It's made to be a juicy, succulent red which gets along brilliantly with most food. It's something with a little extra interest factor that you can knock the top off any night of the week.
Great drinking at a great price. Nail hit on head by this father/son duo.
Simon Gilbert has been one of the quiet achievers in Australian wine for almost 40 years.
Having worked for some of the biggest names in Aus wine (Lindemans, Padthaway and Brangayne to mention just a few) he has amassed a very serious skill set which he is now putting to work under his own label which focuses on regionally expressive wines from NSW.
Simon is a sixth generation winemaker who has built a reputation for producing top quality wines under his own label since 2004. Now with son Will on board as co-winemaker, the Gilbert family winery is going from strength to strength.
