“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!”

Cheers, Mike

    An oak driven style with a peppery spicy lift to the black fruit fragrances and quite a dry palate full of flavours of plums and herbs with good tannins. 4.5 Stars

    A great drop.
