Expert Reviews

Coming from vineyards in Heathcote (52%) and Goulburn Valley (48%), Trust’s 2010 Shiraz is deep garnet-purple in color with fragrant aromas of ripe black cherries, black raspberries and mulberries over hints of violets, prunes and cinnamon stick. Medium to full bodied, the palate is richly fruited with red berry preserve and baking spice flavors marked by a medium level of rounded tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long. Rating 90 - Drink by 2016+, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, erobertparker.com (JUN/2012).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep burgundy in colour.

Aroma

The wine exhibits a delicious combination of mulberries, star anise and roast parsnips with hints of leather.

Palate

Very sweet across the mid palate, silky chalky tannin, and a rich flavour of blood plums and a bit of earthiness. The finish is sweet and lingering.

Winery Profile

Don Lewis grew up on a vineyard near the Murray River in north-western Victoria. For the past 35 years, he has passionately dedicated his professional life to the art of growing grapes and making wine.

As a winemaker, his attention to detail is his hallmark. His skill with Shiraz in particular, is legendary. Over three decades Don has created innumerable award-winning wines and many wines of distinction as chief winemaker for Mitchelton Wines in central Victoria.

In 2004, Don left his full-time position at Mitchelton to concentrate on a number of projects, including trust. He still consults to Mitchelton's chief winemaker, who until recently was Toby Barlow, who along with Lewis's trust partner Narelle King, earned their stripes as assistant winemakers under Don's tutelage.

The partnership with Narelle King has also led to another venture, making wine in Porrera, Spain for the Merum Priorati company. It was in Porrera that Don and Narelle came across the town's stunning sundial, which became the inspiration for trust's distinctive label.

Back in Australia, Don and his wife Jenny live literally in the Mitchelton vineyards, surrounded by Shiraz, Merlot and Riesling vines. They have their own vineyard, Crystal Hill, on the banks of the Goulburn River from which Don has been producing his own wine, for several years, cheekily called The Don.
