Expert Reviews

Vivid crimson-purple; a classic Great Southern style, with a spice, flower and berry bouquet, the medium to full-bodied palate with layers of deep black and red fruits, spice and cracked pepper backed by quality oak and ripe tannins. Rating 95 - Drink by 2032, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red colour

Aroma

Attractive nose showing ripe plum fruit characters with some black pepper and spice notes backed by subtle French oak. A lovely example of cool climate Shiraz.

Palate

Typical cool climate Shiraz that is perfectly ripe. The ripe plum and blackberry fruits come through on the front palate, backed by some light cedary notes from the French oak. The wine has a balanced and subtle tannin structure that is harmoniously integrated with the rich fruit core, and provides great length.

Cellaring, Food Matching

Enjoy now or over the next 5-8 years with red meat dishes, or with dried fruit and cheeses at the end of the meal.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

3drops began with a family farm and a vision- a vision to produce premium wines and extra virgin olive oil whilst maintaining the integrity of the land for generations to come. Southwest of Mount Barker in the heart of the acclaimed Great Southern wine region of Western Australia, vines and olive trees flourish side by side in the cool, pristine climate.

The 3drops vineyard comprises 15 fertile hectares planted with varieties of Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz. Italian, Greek and Spanish varieties of olive trees thrive alongside the vines. The name 3drops was chosen to reflect the attributes of three precious liquids wine, olive oil and water, with both the vineyard and olive grove carefully irrigated from a large wetland on the property.

The melding of time honoured tradition, passion and sensibility with contemporary techniques and the latest technology, enables 3drops to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characters.
