Expert Reviews

Light crimson-purple; a highly fragrant spicy bouquet leads into an elegant palate that is no more than medium-bodied, but has very good mouthfeel to the flavours hovering between raspberry and blackberry.

Rating 93- Drink by 2020 Ben Edwards - 2012 Australian Wine Companion

Juicy, come hither style Geelong Shiraz that sits around or just over medium bodied. The vineyard in question has been farmed organically for around 8 years now, with some biodynamic input as well. Attention to detail goes a long way in viticulture and winemaking. Essence of plum and cherry yet freshness is retained. Cool climate white pepper and some very tasty pan juices make this a tantalising proposition. Hints of anise and charcoal too. The French oak sits behind the fruit comfortably, providing support where needed and contributing to fine, chalky tannin. Controlled generosity. Really enjoyed drinking this. 93/100 Very Good - Excellent Jeremy Pringle - Wine Will Eat Itself

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright crimson red.

Aroma

Spicy fruit aromas of redcurrants and raspberry are underpinned by a clove-like french oak influence.

Palate

Elegant and fresh fruit flavours true to the bouquet are evident across the medium bodied palate. A fine grained tannin and natural acid skeleton neatly cuts the fleshy fruit charcters throughout a persistent long finish.

Food Matching

Pasta with veal ragu, soft cheeses, barbecued meats.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located 20 minutes north of Geelong, 5km east of Bannockburn, approximately 60km west of Melbourne our family winery specialises in Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz . Our wines are made from grapes grown in low yielding vineyards carefully selected for their distinctive terroir, match of site to grape variety and sustainable viticultural practices. Traditional winemaking ensures our wines truly reflect their inherent quality provenance.

Our name Provenance, meaning the place of origin, reflects the emphasis we place on the simple reality that great wines come from great vineyards. For more than 16 years we have searched the southern Victorian regions of Geelong, Ballarat and Henty seeking the best match of vineyard site (terroir) to the best grape varieties. This ensures that we start with the best possible produce and it is from this foundation that we carefully craft silky, balanced wines of restrained power.
