Overview

Sourced mainly from Heathcote our Shiraz parcels come from both deep Cambrian soil as well as gravellier sandy loam. The richer fuller characters of the wines from the Cambrian soil are tempered by the lifted aromatics and firmer acid structure of the shiraz from the tougher gravellier soils. Together they complement each other to produce this classic Central Victorian shiraz blend, replete with savoury characters and rich chocolate combined with caramalised vegetables and beautiful fine tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The extensive experience and winemaking knowledge of Don Lewis combined with Narelle King's broad thinking and diverse skill set, brought partnership strength to Tar & Roses. For the past three years, Don and Narelle have been making wine in Priorat, Spain, fuelling their intrigue in the classic European varietals, particularly Nebbiolo.

Their interests were not confined to the varietals or wine styles solely in traditional European regions, but how these varieties could be grown and made in Australia.

Back in Australia, Don and Narelle have concentrated on producing wines from these European varietals in their own region - Central Victoria. Here, they make Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese in addition to a Central Victorian Shiraz, one of Don's signature varieties.

Tar & Roses encapsulates the complexity and interest of this story. One that shows the friendship between Don and Narelle, and the multi-regions of Italy, Spain and Australia. It is a brand that speaks of the traditions of wine merging with the cutting edge of Australian winemaking, bridging the old world with the new.
