The Outstanding 2012 Estate Shiraz

Posted by Jane Leckie. Filed under Awards

It has been an exciting time for us at She-Oak Hill and our 2012 Estate Shiraz has been shining.

The release of the 2015 Wine Companion announced a score of 95 for this Shiraz and within the same week at the annual Heathcote Wine Show there was elation all around when having won a gold Medal  our 2012 Estate Shiraz in the Young Shiraz class, this wine went on to be awarded the Best Single Vineyard trophy for the same wine.

Our fantastic wine maker, Mark Hunter deserves a great deal of the credit for this result but as Mark very graciously said in a message of congratulations ‘you can’t make good wine without great fruit’ and noted the effort we put in to achieving this end.

If you don’t already have some 2012 Estate Shiraz in your cellar order on line or email for an order form.

With a score of 55.5 /60 and the judges commenting ‘rich,spicy,gorgeous’  we could not have been happier.
