Rip-roaring Aussie Shiraz from a larger than life winemaker and a (comparatively) cold vineyard, hence the typically Aussie name. Packed with fruit and exceptionally well made – it’s this type of Shiraz that made us all fall in love with Aussie wine.
"Blackberries and hint of peppery spice but smooth – loved it. Great stuff"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
If you like your Shiraz to be big, bold and brimming with upfront blackberry spice, you’re going to love Brass Monkey. It’s from winemaker Toby Wanklyn, a talented character with a roguish sense of fun. Toby loves his Shiraz, and much of the fruit for this big, juicy red comes from his favourite vineyard, prized for producing really ripe yet balanced flavour. The reason behind its consistent quality is that the local climate’s relatively cold temperatures give grapes a longer time to ripen. This allows the character in the Shiraz more chance to develop whilst retaining a balancing acidity. The result is wine with huge amounts of fruit, that’s never overpowering. Great sipped solo, it’s also worth trying with roast meats and strong cheeses.
