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.
Bright ruby red, with a nose full of expressive cherries, blackberries, liquorice and coffee. A rich medium to full bodied palate with hints of chocolate and dark cherries. Soft tannins with persistent flavour and great length.
Best served with a beef casserole
A single vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz, sourced from the Northern Barossa locale of Ebeneezer. The soil is well drained sandy red loam over a solid limestone pan. Picking time is based on flavour, with the emphasis on ripe fruit flavours, but not jammyness. The grapes are destemmed, with whole berries maintained where possible. These are vinified in open top fermenters and pumped over twice a day, for approx. 8 days. Once pressed, the wine is matured in 300 litre hogsheads for just over 18 months. A small proportion of new French and American oak is used to build the wine and highlight its savory character. The balance of the wine goes to older French and American oak.
