There is loads of white pepper on the nose and blueberries, currants, and spiciness. A very silken texture with vibrant red fruits, hints of anise, elegance, length and well interfrated tannins. With more in common with a Syrah than most Australian Shiraz this wine has wow factor to impress with its real finesse. Try our Shiraz with slow cooked lamb shoulder or seared tuna or a standing rib roast.
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks. Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.
