Tasting Note

This superb Shiraz smells invitingly of juicy ripe blackberries and black cherries, with slightly resinous, spicy, incense notes, toasted oak and raspberry jam. In the mouth, it is irresistibly delicious, with gorgeously pronounced black fruit, black pepper and liquorice notes, alongside subtle, suave oak. The tannins are beautifully rounded and velevety and there is fabulous freshness. This is really, really delicious.

10% of the must was held cold for three days prior to inoculation, to extend total skin contact to maximise colour, flavour and aromatic intensity. It was fermented at around 24˚Celsius in stainless steel sweep-arm fermenters to preserve primary fruit flavours. The AWRI796 yeast strain was used because it lets the character of the variety, region and vintage express themselves, without imparting other flavours. One third of the wine was matured in 140 year-old 5000L English oak casks, and a further third was kept in one, two or three year-old French oak hogsheads and puncheons. The remainder was maintained as a fresh, fruity element in stainless steel.

Food Recommendation

Served perfectly alongside juniper berry rubbed roast Venison fillet with red wine jus.


  • Once again, Fowles bags a spot in the 100 with their uniquely perfumed Shiraz. Cool climate Victoria features prominently in this year’s collection of wines and this is because the wines, historically,
    are often a little finer and lighter than the warmer climate wines. I cannot make this distinction per se because there is a lot of crossover of styles between regions and States in Australia and it more often than not comes down to the specific vineyard, the intentions of the winemaker and the vintage conditions. Matt Fowles embraces his floral style of Shiraz, but it is not a lightweight at all. Its heady perfume
    leads the way with wild flower, herb and iodine notes and when the palate swings into view there is robust gamey, berry-soaked fruit here and also a fair dose of grip on the finish, too. So don’t choose this wine because it comes from Victoria, choose it because it is a sensory experience like no other. Matt and his wife Lu, who designs the labels, swear it goes well with all manner of game. I love this wine with washed rind cheeses. Each to their own!
