Soft, smooth and delicious with plenty of polish.

RATINGS AND REVIEWS

6Ft6 Shiraz 89/100. Top Value Recommended  

Deep ruby colour, a hint of purple to the rim. Crushed forest berries, rosemary and cracked pepper aromatics. Black fruits, morcilla and soft herb layers flow across the palate. A firm line of tannins give more texture than expected and their ripeness makes them sit deep and persistent. Medium to full weight with good drive and length 15 FEB 2021

VINTAGE 2019

Low winter rainfall led to low soil moisture, reducing not only Spring vine growth but also yields due to lots of scrawny, small bunches developing upon shorter than average canes. However we enjoyed cool to mild springtime conditions that continued into the first weeks of summer, leading to fairly typical timing for flowering and fruit set to occur. But the summer heatwave conditions eventually hit us with a vengeance rarely seen in these parts. We sweated through 9 days over 38 degrees and many a warm night over summer which saw our fruit ripen like crazy, exacerbated by a dearth of rain. Irrigation was absolutely necessary to keep the vines from falling over. By mid February we were right into harvest mode and no matter how fast we harvested we barely kept pace with the rate of ripening, so wines this year will certainly have a riper, more generous feel to them.

 

VINIFICATION

Winemaking is geared for maximum flavour at minimum fuss. Simplicity is the key and the results speak for themselves. Simply harvested and destemmed to closed fermenters, fermented warm and lightly pressed to a combination of oak and tank where it is stored for 12 months. Several aerative rackings to ward off reduction and aid tannin evolution before the final blend is put together, cross flow filtered and bottled.

 FOOD MATCH

Beautifully balanced and full of flavour, this versatile shiraz can be matched with an array of dishes from lighter red meats to richer sauces and food with a touch of spice.

My go to wine

Sure it could be a little pricey for an everyday wine but after taking advantage of the bulk discount (36 bottles in my case) this is an amazing wine for under $20.

Thanks Neale. Can't go wrong with a wine with a discount! We appreciate the review and give you a big cheers.

Rich Rewards...

I bought the half dozen pack of the 2018 Shiraz for my husband. Generally, he's a Cab/Sav bloke, but the tasting notes indicated this wasn't a particularly big Shiraz so I thought 'Why not?'
All I can say is, he absolutely loved it. Smooth and full-bodied, rich and beautifully balanced - his words. Each bottle was consumed with no particular purpose, other than to savour the delights
of a cool climate Shiraz done right. And I have that lovely warm fuzzy feeling that comes from supporting a hard-working, local producer!

6Ft6 Shiraz VIBRANT. RICH. FULL OF GOODNESS.

Don’t be fooled by the price...this Shiraz is the perfect blend of goodness & richness in taste and more than value for money.

I was pleasantly surprised at the intensity of flavour in a medium bodied red.

I can’t not (yes a double negative!!) mention the gorgeous, vibrant colour when we decantered it.

I was afraid I might miss out, so I bought another dozen!!

A cheerful weeknight red

A juicy local shiraz that happily matches most dinners (and chocolate).
