Gardner's Ground Shiraz 2013

A new label to me from New South Wales' Cowra region.

As per the website: Gardner's Ground Vineyard is located within Rivers Road Organic Farms, on Rivers Road in Canowindra (Cowra Region) New South Wales. The farm is a community title property with an organic covenant over the whole area. More than 10% of the community land has been dedicated to native trees and pasture. Replanting of previously cleared land provides a habitat for native wildlife, shelter belts and improves the quality of waterways on the farm and for everyone downstream. This is part of the communities commitment to responsible land stewardship.

Vine planting began in 2001 and 14.5 hectares of the farm is under vines with the first vintage produced in 2004.

Red fruits and char kick things off. I keep thinking steak when I take a whiff. Black pepper and dried red bell peppers are also met by some red plums.

Soft fruits coats the mouth but is thinly veiled. It comes and goes quicker than expected.

Good drinking for those seeking a certified organic red wine ready to wash down your casual bbq feast.

Drink now to five years.
