  • Mark Walpole is behind Fighting Gully Road and he has a serious resume. Brown Brothers, then Greenstone but he consults all round the country, particularly on Spanish and Italian varieties.

    This wine is grown on his own vineyard, planted in 1997, and is very similar to a Giaconda Shiraz - maybe a bit meatier, spicy, sandalwood aromas, blackberry, earth and leather with lots of well integrated tannins. It is seriously brilliant stuff, concentrated yet understated and, in my opinion, the best Shiraz we have had for a while.


    Classical cool climate Shiraz, showing spice, white pepper, and red berry fruits. A full, yet medium-bodied palate with very fine-grained tannins. Our fourth Shiraz from the Fighting Gully Road site has a tannin structure that will ensure that it will with the help of screw cap closure age well for the next decade or more.

    Alc/vol - 13.5%


    '15yo vines, hand-picked and sorted, 30% whole bunches, wild open ferment, 21 days on skins, matured for 15 months in 30% new oak. The is a cool climate, medium-bodied Shiraz full of spicy, tangy black cherry and plum fruit, the finish long and perfectly balanced.'

    'This delivers a charcuterie-like sheen across dark fruits and plenty of spices, really complex, good aromatic dept and detail here. The palate's crunchy and delivers polished slate-like tannins with plenty of crunchy appeal, dark plum and cherry flavours, holds bright, fine and pure.'
