McPherson's Don't Tell Gary, Shiraz
This wine is a labour of love – one the boss didn’t know about. In 2014, winemaker Jo Nash discovered an exceptional parcel of Shiraz from the Grampians which she gently crushed, then tucked away in some ridiculously expensive French oak barrels to age for 12 months. The wine speaks for itself – minimal intervention, purity of fruit, Shiraz at its best.
The product of a secret experiment where “big boss man” Gary McPherson of McPherson wine fame wasn’t supposed to find out until they knew if it was any good, the 2014 DTG Shiraz is a beautiful dark garnet colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins. This is a special occasion wine. Drink with like – minded wine lovers who enjoy sticking it to the man! Take a moment to admire the gorgeous colour of the wine, then its perfect match to charcuterie and cheese, char grilled steak, or a meat pie.
