About The Wine
Gary Mills, always pushing the envelope. Here he goes again with something akin to Merlot nouveau!
Coming off his leased Yarra vineyard in Wandin East, this is fermented with whole berries and ol neutral oak, resulting in a really bright-fruited, bouncy style of Merlot. No additions save for a smidgeon of sulphur as with all of Gary's wines.
Wines like this are what could see Merlot make a comeback. It's just a sloshy, slurpy, fun-times red!
Gary Mills' Jamsheed wines are amongst the most exciting in the country: thrilling, authentic wines packed with personality. Campbell Mattinson labelled him “a leading producer”, while Jamie Goode called him “the new face of Australian wine”.
With a specific focus on the regional differences in Victorian Syrah, Gary has been 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 Pet Nats, and 'Harem' and 'Park' labels.
Wild, electric and a little left of centre, Jamsheed is one of the Victoria’s most compelling producers.
