Overview

Strict cap management regimes and temperature control ensured the wine displays the softness, generous flavour and drinkability for which the Black Cat Shiraz is renowned. A selection of American and French oak hogsheads was used for the maturation of selected wine parcels for 12-15 months prior to blending and bottling. While drinking beautifully now, this wine will reward careful cellaring for up to 8 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Richmond Grove Wines maxim proclaims special wines from special places, and Richmond Grove is nested in its own special place, in the Barossa Valley town of Tanunda.

At Richmond Grove we believe that to make the best wine, the grapes must be selected from the regions most suited to that particular grape variety. For this reason we source our grapes from across Australia's most renowned wine making districts to create a portfolio of wines that showcase the distinctive characters of geographical regions within Australia.

Richmond Grove began life more than a century ago in 1897 when Ernst Gottlieb Hoffman began making wine under the Orange Grove label and the winery has been producing wine ever since. Over the past century the winery has undergone many changes, yet it has always maintained its grandeur and prominence in producing wines of exceptional quality.

In 1955 Australian winemaking icon, John Vickery joined to the company as Chief Winemaker, supervising all winemaking with his talented team. Almost 50 vintages later, he still calls Richmond Grove home. John is revered by many as one of Australia's most influential and successful winemakers. John has amassed more than 50 trophies and 400 gold medals for his white wines and 35 trophies and 200 medals for his red wines.

Today, under the management of Richmond Grove winemaker Steve Clarkson and with John Vickery's guidance this famous winery is producing premium regional varietal wines sourced from Australia's finest wine regions.
