Shinas The Guilty Shiraz 2018

Product description

Shinas Estate is situated in the northwest region of Victoria. This region is known for its Mediterranean-like climate, classic wines and great food. The first vines were planted in the region in 1886 and by 1898 vine planting commenced on the estate. With eight generations of grape growing and wine-producing experience, as well as George Shinas' passion for perfection, he draws on time-honoured traditions to produce premium hand-crafted wine.

Who is this George Shinas character? None other than your standard night court judge by evening and winemaker turned partying rockstar by day/weekend. The honourable George Shinas is truly the international man of mystery, especially when partnered with his dynamic duo brethren and de facto winemaker, Stephen Black of Small Gully.

The Guilty is produced from premium vineyards. Due to its limited production, only a lucky few will ever get to taste it. Made from low-yielding old vines dating back to 1898 and aged in older French oak, the fruit is sourced from Mildura on the northwest Victorian border. A ripe shiny blackberry red colour, with voluptuous cherry, vanilla and peppery spice aromas. This full-bodied wine is packed with smoky vanilla oak, cherry and strawberry fruits, chocolate and mocha all wrapped up in a big, rich, velvety smooth package. With juicy, bold tannins this is an outstanding Australian Shiraz.
