Shiraz vintage 2021
We are thrilled to be with Josh at Myattsfield and support the winemaking process, together with local fruit pickers and vintage staff.
The grapes are very small and sweet, you can imagine the taste of currants just from looking. Shiraz grapes taste more tart, fresher, and their texture are looser, a bit creamier. We're looking
forward to tasting this delicious batch of Shiraz soon!
About Myattsfield vineyard
Myattsfield’s award-winning wines reflect the complex flavours of the selective grapes grown in Bickley Valley in Perth Hills, Western Australia.
Facing the lower Southern side, Myattsfield is capable of producing better whites and lighter reds while elevated western facing sites are ideal for fortified production. Taking advantage of the region’s climate, they plant varietals such as Verdelho, Mourvedre, Touriga, and Durif, alongside Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.
The region is typically associated with wines from similar climates like the inland areas of Spain and Portugal, in which the winemakers have spent many years honing their skills. The sub-region Bickley Valley was recognised as having a unique set of geographical and topographical influences that influence the quality of wine produced. Have a visit when you have a chance!
