Biscay Road Shiraz 2022


For $25, you are drinking very well with this Biscay Road Shiraz in your glass.

A new label for vigneron Alan Hickinbotham, the fruit for this wine comes off his Biscay Road vineyard. With 46 hectares of biscay soil that is ten feet deep, this is a new project aside from his Paringa and 3 Rings labels. As Hickinbotham says, the dry, cracking biscay clay would be something the late great Shane Warne would have enjoyed bowling on. Personally, I have nearly lost a leg not far from this site on Krondorf Road. Those cracks are deep!

This sees 18 months in French oak. Dense berry fruits and berry pie open the account. A full-bodied Shiraz, dark plums, dark chocolate, rum 'n' raisin and cedar consume the mouth with a lick of sweet baked blueberries on the tail. It's a wine drenched with power with some warmth to snuggle up to on a cool night. Dusty and drying tannins complete a wine with muscle that will age well over the medium term.

Drink to five years+
