“I love Grampians shiraz – I love the flavour profile, the pepper and the minerality. You can make an elegant style of wine here, and if I could only make one wine, it would be Grampians shiraz,” says Adam Louder, co-founder / winemaker SubRosa wine.
Adam returned home to the granite soil of the Grampians after working in the world’s greatest wine regions to make Shiraz. “Our warm days and cool nights in the Grampians means the grapes have a long growing season which adds to the complexity of the wine that can be created,” he says. “That’s why the Grampians is where I want to make our SubRosa wine.”
Grapes have been grown in the cool climate foothills and valleys of the Grampians’ 360-million-year old mountain ranges since 1867, making it one of Australia’s oldest wine regions.
Shiraz is the Grampians wine region’s top performing variety. Shiraz from the Great Western area is noted for its silky tannins and dark or black fruits; often with a touch of spice and licorice. These wines develop savoury, earthy characters with age. Beyond Great Western, you’ll discover spicy flavours from nutmeg to black pepper, as well as forest fruits, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry. From savoury, meaty characters, to floral aromas and cherry flavours, you can always expect generosity, power and abundant fruit wrapped in velvety tannins in the Grampians region’s Shiraz.
