Expert Reviews

Good colour; the gently perfumed bouquet leads into a medium-bodied palate that opens with black cherry and plum fruit before moving to more spicy/savoury characters on the finish. Rating 93 - Drink by 2016 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The wine is very fragrant on the nose with a beautifully balanced and elegant palate, showing

concentrated flavours of Shiraz varietal fruit and spicy oak.

This wine is an outstanding example of Shiraz from the Canberra District's warmest vineyards.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Brindabella Hills vineyard was established in 1986 in an area not previously planted to vines. Initially, it was planted as an experimental plot to assess the quality of premium varieties in this new area. As a result of these new vines producing exceptional quality grapes, eight acres of premium grape varieties were planted on a granite ridge above the Murrumbidgee River, 25 km north west of Canberra. The mountains of the Brindabella range to the west and hills to the south form a natural amphitheatre and the vineyard maximises the climatic advantages of a warm site in a cool district. A steep drop to the Murrumbidgee river 100 metres below the vineyard gives good air drainage, ensuring frost protection in all but extreme conditions. Brindabella Hills is a family owned winery run by Roger and Faye Harris. Roger is winemaker and is qualified both in Chemistry (Ph.D., Adelaide University) and Wine Science (B.Appl.Sci, Charles Sturt University). The project is the culmination of a life-long interest in wine stimulated by several visits to the premium wine growing areas of Europe and America. Over the past few years this has led to many award winning wines and national "boutique winery" trophies for Chardonnay and Shiraz as well as local trophies for Riesling, Cabernets, and Sauvignon Blanc.
