Product information

Description

Shiraz - Red Australian Wine

Generous flavours of plum and raspberry are bursting out of this Shiraz with a hint of chocolate and oak. It is a versatile wine that goes well with most dishes, especially with roasted red meats such as lamb and beef.

We have carefully crafted this range of wines as a tribute to four generations of classic Australian winemaking by the McGuigan family. It takes inspiration from the central symbol of the family crest - the lion which represents the courage and commitment to continually create truly flavoursome Australian wine.

Grape Variety:

Shiraz/Syrah

Vinification Details:

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes & styles of red fermenters where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures of 18 - 22°C for 5 - 7 days. Fermenting at cooler temperatures allows the fruit flavours to be nurtured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation the majority of the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French & American Oak. Components are then selected, blended, stabilised and clarified

History:

McGuigan Wines was established to celebrate the culmination of 3 generations of wine growing by the McGuigan family. Founder Brian McGuigan adopted the central symbol of the family crest, the lion, to reflect inspiration & the McGuigan's enduring spirit & passion for producing great quality Australian wine. Today Brian's brother, Neil McGuigan, is at the helm of McGuigan Wines & continues the proud family tradition. IWSC Winemaker of the Year-2009/2011/2012 & IWC White Winemaker of the Year-2009/2012/2013

Regional Information:

The fruit is selected from vineyards in the Riverland, Murray Darling & Barossa Valley regions. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates & generally low rainfall, making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural & winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths. Long sunshine hours ensure fruit ripens fully & low relative humidity results in little incidence of disease
