The Wine

This new shiraz wine represents an evolution in our wine making for this variety. This is a combination of wine matured in new and older small French oak, large 1600 LT French oak casks and long maceration on skins (10 months) in Spanish terracotta amphorae. This brings much more complexity and, especially, more depth and tannin from the long maceration.

There is a theme running through the wine releases from this much anticipated 2021 vintage – power, complexity and refinement. The shiraz shows a superb tannin profile that has put more grunt in the engine and strengthened the chassis for greater endurance. Briar and undergrowth, Chinese five spice, roasted beetroot and raspberry licorice. Richly fruited and exotically spiced with a dynamic tannin structure that will age gracefully. A veritable iron fist in a velvet glove. Rick Kinzbrunner, Winemaker

About the Wine Maker

Giaconda is one of Australia’s most famous names. The Beechworth winery was established by Rick Kinzbrunner in 1982. A mechanical engineer by training, he became interested in wine in the early 1970s and spent the next 10 years traveling to wine-growing regions to learn as much as possible. Rick was the first to establish a vineyard of any consequence in Beechworth when he first planted in 1982, Giaconda is best known for its Chardonnay, but also produces Shiraz and Pinot Noir. The wines here are hand-crafted by Rick and his son Nathan, who do everything themselves and only take on help at harvest. Some of the most desirable wines in Australia, and indeed the world, Giaconda’s wines are in regrettably short supply...BBR
