When Australia’s top cellars need fast cash they come to our man on the ground Dan Parrott. Pure discretion, Dan will keep their name a secret in exchange for a low price. This punchy Shiraz recently stole the show at a major tasting, it’s that good!
"Single-vineyard Shiraz, from a top family cellar, a great vintage and a superb Shiraz region"
Dan Parrott Buyer for Australia
If you’re a fan of Aussie wine, you’ll probably have seen a cleanskin or two. But it’s rare to come across one crafted from the fruit of a single vineyard. And although we can’t name its winery, the single vineyard provenance of this luscious Shiraz means it is a quality wine made in tiny quantities. But that’s perhaps not too surprising for Langhorne Creek, a region known as Australia’s home of the small family winery. It’s also famous for the rich quality of its finest Shiraz, particularly evident in examples from the 2017 vintage. Conditions that year produced a long, slow ripening time to give the perfect combination of fruit flavour, aroma and velvety tannins for ageing. Fruity with lovely length, it’s great with roasts and cheeses.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
