Producer and Tasting Notes


Irvine Wines

Spanning over 400 acres, Irvine Wines’ foundations were laid with the first shiraz plantings by the Miles Family in 1867. Their family owned vineyards are carefully nurtured by fourth generation vigneron Peter Miles and his highly experienced team. Their dedication to crafting exceptional wines is mirrored by their deep heritage in the Barossa region. The region is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz and Riesling vineyards and has long been associated with producing world-class expressions of these varieties. Irvine carefully select only the best fruit from each vineyard for their premium Barossa and Eden Valley varieties. An inherent understanding and respect for provenance together with an ongoing commitment to excellence will ensure the Irvine legacy endures.

Tasting Notes

Springhill Merlot is an easy drinking, approachable red that still maintains the Irvine style. On the nose there are raspberry and plum and the palate is medium-weighted with soft tannins and a chocolate edge on the finish. A great introduction to the Irvine portfolio.

Food Matches

Strip sirloin of beef with horseradish, mashed potato and all the trimmings.
