2016 Reserve Shiraz
Maygars Hill 2016 Reserve Shiraz
chosen in James Halliday's

This is the best Reserve Shiraz that Maygars has made to date. There is an urgency, a freshness to the expression of the Shiraz, and new oak has been easily absorbed on the long palate. This isolated vineyard is one of the jewels of the Strathbogie Ranges. 13.5% alc. Rating 96 To 2036 RRP $42
Jenny Houghton - Maygars Hil
“I’m delighted to stand with the other awardees chosen by James to be in the best 25 reds over $30. It’s also a great opportunity to recognise the role of viticulture in producing a stand out wine. Great practices in the vineyard are a significant part of the story. This little patch of dirt in the Strathbogie foothills of Victoria, is delivering way beyond it’s due.
6 acres of shiraz and cabernet, hand planted from cuttings delivers small intense berries that produce wine of great colour and intensity.
“As I approach pruning, I’m mindful of each vine and what it looks like it needs to be healthy and happy for the next growing season. I was able to work with ideal weather
conditions this season to us to have serious wine and recommendations as below.”
