Tasting Notes:

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Warner Vineyard reveals a gorgeous nose of ripe cherries, mulberries and plums with hints of lavender, Provence herbs, Bovril and pepper plus a touch of baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it has tons of fruit layers and firm yet approachable rounded tannins, with plenty of freshness and great length.

Tasting Notes:

Very different to the Estate Shiraz, more spicy and savoury, more seeking to jump off the lead and head off into the unknown. It's a high quality wine with loads of personality, but doesn't have the magisterial presence of its sibling.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Giaconda vineyard was established by Rick Kinzbrunner, a mechanical engineer who became interested in wine in the early 1970's. Rick then spent the next ten years working in the industry, travelling and following his passion for wine. After a brief stint in New Zealand, he studied at Davis University in California and worked at some of the most respected wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys (namely Stag's Leap, Simi and Matanzas Creek). In Europe he worked for the Moueix group in Bordeaux, co-owner of the fabled Chateau Petrus. After returning to Australia in 1980 to take up a position as assistant winemaker at Brown Brothers in Milawa, Rick purchased land in the nearby Beechworth wine region - at the foothills of the beautiful North-East Victorian Alps. Planting commenced in 1982 and the property is now devoted solely to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. A separate planting of Nebbiolo has also been established close to the Beechworth township at Red Hill. Total area under vines at the Giaconda Estate Vineyard is now 4 hectares. Annual wine production is approximately 2,500 dozen bottles. Rick’s son Nathan Kinzbrunner also works full time at Giaconda and has done so since the 2007 vintage. His responsibilities include Assistant Winemaker and General Business Manager.
