Expert Reviews

Medium red-purple, good for the vintage; attractive plum and black cherry fruit; while only light- to medium-bodied, it has a smooth and flavoursome palate, and very good length. Cool, wet vintages are not necessarily a death knell. Rating 92 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Medium red with purple hues.

Aroma

Lifted red plum and mulberry fruit integrated with aromas of ground spice and black pepper fine cedary oak sits in the background.

Palate

Medium bodied and complex with plum, dark cherry and mulberry fruit with earth and pepper. Acidity adds freshness and structure to the mid palate with fine grained earthy tannins adding elegance and length.

Food Matching

Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef cheeks.

Cellaring

Whilst the 2011 Bobbie Burns Shiraz is drinking beautifully on release, our long history with this wine suggests it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 10-12 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Campbells winery and vineyards are situated in the historic Rutherglen Wine Region of North East Victoria.

Brothers Malcolm and Colin are the fourth generation to carry on the Campbell tradition started by their great grandfather John Campbell in Rutherglen in 1870. Together with their wives Jenny and Prue, they have forged a strong reputation for Campbells as a benchmark Rutherglen wine producer.

The brothers are an ideal team with Malcolm as viticulturist and Colin as winemaker. They have 160 acres of vineyard all within the historic Rutherglen Wine Region and are a true estate grown and bottled operation.

This means we have the ability to nurture our wines from vine to bottle. As Colin says, “Our wines are like our children, we bring them into this world and take great pride and joy in holding their hands and watching them grow”.

Malcolm's approach in the vineyard is quite simple, “Quality even at the expense of quantity is our aim. We assist nature, we don't seek to dominate her.”

Colin believes his role as winemaker is to maximize and protect the natural fruit flavours. His skill is in making wines with structure and balance that can confidently be aged; a hallmark of Campbells Wines.

Today the fifth generation of Campbells is adding their enthusiasm and skills. How excited would their great great grandfather John Campbell be to see this dedication to the Campbell name!
