The Gipsie Jack Wine Co are a breath of fresh air thanks to their down to earth approach to making wine. No pretences or airs and graces here, just down to earth no-nonsense wines from some of the oldest wine-making families in Langhorne Creek.
This Shiraz is characteristically full-bodied and spicy like so many reds of the region, making it suitable for robust, red meat dishes. Black cherry aromas with floral notes, before red fruits, earth and gentle tannins on the long finish.
Last year's Shiraz won a slew of awards, including Best Shiraz at the Langhorne Creek wine show. Another year of favourable conditions in the region bodes very well for this vintage!

94 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Australian Wine Companion "A jungle of ripe, sweet berries comes dressed in a well-cut suit. This lays on full-bodied flavour, all saturated plum and mint, before turning tidy and respectable on the finish, mostly courtesy of fine-grained, well-positioned tannin. The value bells are ringing."

About the Producer
This wine was first made to help out local growers - mates - who had lost their contracts with big corporate wineries at the start of the wine glut. John, Bill and Ben couldn't let the quality Langhorne Creek fruit go to waste and along with it, their friends' livelihoods. Hence the beginning of the Gipsie Jack Wine Company and the very first wine in the range, Gipsie Jack Shiraz.
