When you spend 20 years working in a vineyard, it’s hard not to develop a soft spot for your favourite block.
I have been turning the fruit from my favourite block into a wine of its own for years now – the MP1 Shiraz – but our Vineyard Manager (who happens to be my son Jimmy) has a very different idea of which block should get a label all of its own.
So, after years of hearing him tell me this block is “way too good not to have a wine of its own”, we thought the time was right to indulge him and give it a go. Boy, are we happy we did!
Jimmy’s Block Shiraz, like the man himself, doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is a wine you can happily enjoy on a Tuesday night with a steak on the BBQ, or on a Sunday afternoon with cheese and crackers, or anytime with anything really!
This limited production wine has been developed especially for our PRESS CLUB members and is only available direct from our website.
