Our New Reserve Red Wines have Arrived!

We are proud to present our very special Reserve red wines from the 2012 Vintage. These wines were produced after crop thinning at veraison, resulting in a smaller number of more intensely flavoured grape bunches. The wines produced are stunning! The Shiraz is rich and spicy with lovely notes of pepper and rich red berries. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and fruit driven wine with subtle blackcurrant fruit beautifully integrated with sweet oak. Check these wines out at www.girrraweenestate.com.au/shop

The Magnificent Seven

A group of Seven Granite Belt producers have formed the “Magnificent Seven” These are highly awarded boutique winemakers who grow their own grapes, make and bottle the wine and who will meet you at their Cellar Door to talk to you about their winemaking philosophy. If you are into authentic hand crafted top quality wines you must visit all Seven. Keep an eye out for our launch event in Brisbane and also look out for the Magnificent Seven brochure when you visit the Granite Belt

Vintage Report 2014

What a season! Frost at the start of the season and a VERY dry growing season conspired to reduce yields this year. It was noticeable to me that the number of birds were very low this year – maybe it was the relatively hot dry weather? But despite these problems, our wines are looking very good. Fruit quality was excellent and the fermentations have gone very smoothly. You can expect some very good Granite Belt wines from 2014.
