The Idiot Shiraz



Shiraz from the Orange is quite unique in style compared to most other regions in Australia and is more reminiscent of the Northern Rhone, France.  Our Idiot has a voluptuous dark berry character with more blue fruits, and a fine savoury tannin.  The colour is iridescent, with an amazing purple hue- the Idiot Shiraz really shines.

Winemaking Notes
• Hand sorted
• Whole berry fermentation in open vats
• Extended time of skins

Winemakers Tasting Notes
The Idiot is dark garnet with a purple hue. This cool climate Shiraz is true to its region and variety. It has a fragrant bouquet with juicy red fruits and blueberry.
The palate is succulent yet elegant. It has bountiful fruit and spice finishing with fine savoury tannins.
