Overview

The palate is showing some maturity in the smoothness of its tannins, but there’s the telltale Peel acid cleaning up the back palate and keeping everything structured. The black pepper flavours are quite intense and they dominate the palate, showing great persistence along full length and lasting as a spicy aftertaste for some time. At seven years of age, this wine is just starting to hit its peak drinkability, a testament to the endurance of Peel Shiraz.

Expert Reviews

Made from the original shiraz planting on the estate; the colour is striking (vivid crimson-purple), the bouquet full of black fruits, as is the full-bodied palate, with potent red and black fruits, and a helping of some new oak. The question lies with the alcohol, which definitely warms the finish.Rating 93, Drink by 2028 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Cherry red right to the edges.

Aroma

The peppery nose shows typical Peel Shiraz character. There is the characteristic tightness and youthfulness that stays with Peel reds for a very long time in their maturation.

Palate

The palate is showing some maturity in the smoothness of its tannins, but there’s the telltale Peel acid cleaning up the back palate and keeping everything structured. The black pepper flavours are quite intense and they dominate the palate, showing great persistence along full length and lasting as a spicy aftertaste for some time. At seven years of age, this wine is just starting to hit its peak drinkability, a testament to the endurance of Peel Shiraz.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Peel Wine Region stretches between the coastal areas of Rockingham and 50km south of Mandurah, to inland to the Darling Scarp and shire of Waroona. Part of the Peel Wine Region was originally known as South West Coastal (although never formally recognised) and ran along the coast in the South West from north to Paul Conti Wines (now part of Swan Districts region) and South to Capel Vale (now part of Geographe). The spread of the region from coastal to inland means that the temperature range and soil type is quite different between each area. Wandering on average is the coldest place in the southern wine regions of Western Australia. Although on summer days the temperature often exceeds that of the Peel coastal area and Dwellingup area, the night and winter temperatures are considerably lower. Wandering also has the least amount of rainfall on average compared to the rest of the region with an annual average of 614.5ml* and Dwellingup has the highest average annual rainfall at 1249.1ml*. Soils range from limestone sands to granite clays.

In 1973 the first Shiraz vines were planted, followed by Chenin Blanc and Zinfandel in 1976, and Cabernet Sauvignon in 1979. Other varieties such as Chardonnay, Verdelho, Cabernet Franc and Merlot were planted in 1980.

Additional Shiraz were planted in 1994 and in 2002 we added an extra hectare of Zinfandel, making the total area of land under vine 16 hectares.

The Peel region, with it's closeness to the ocean, limestone soils and Mediterranean climate, is an ideal location for bringing out fruit intensity and adds great regional characteristics to the wine.
