Fallen Giants Vineyard

2014 Shiraz

From our single vineyard planted in 1969 on the eastern slopes of the Grampians. A nice even year with little in the way of heat spikes in the region. The Shiraz was picked in March, then fermented in traditional open fermenters with hand plunging twice a day. The wine was pressed off to barrel where it matured in French oak (20% new) for 18 months before bottling. Drinking well now but will also reward cellaring to 2022.

Product Description

2014 Fallen Giants Vineyard Shiraz – Reviews

Follows with precision the footprints of its ’13 predecessor: come-hither colour, blackberry, and dark cherry fruits wreathed by notes of spice, pepper and licorice, shaped by ultrafine, but persistent, tannins. A lovely cool grown wine. James Halliday – 95 points, 5 Star Winery

Deep red/purple colour and a perfumed, scented, fragrant aroma, with toasty and charcuterie overtones. The wine is full-bodied and a little chewy in texture, deep and concentrated, with grunt and aging ability but also drinkability. The tannins really coat the mouth. This is a big, generous-hearted wine with lots going on. It needs time and will cellar superbly. Huon Hooke – 94 points

It’s one of those wines that seems to open and open in the glass. At first approach the bouquet is muted with suggestions of mixed berry fruit, a dusting of pepper and a sniff of garrigue-like greenery, and the palate is typically spicy sinewy with tannin. As the wine reveals itself it shows a deep concentration, even with medium weight, and a wonderful length of flavour that is capped off with a hint of ‘Aussie bush’ character. It’s an impressive young shiraz that should cellar for a decent spell too. Mike Bennie – 94 points Gourmet Traveller Wine

Fallen Giants. Great name. Though there’s nothing ‘fallen’ about the quality of this release. Yes. This is good. Perfect poise. Peppery but not too much so. Ripped with cherry-plum flavours. Whispers of deli meat and dried eucalypt leaves. Smells, tastes, feels and finishes well. Tannin is fine and precise. Not a foot wrong, as they say. Campbell Mattinson – 94 points, The Wine Front
