The Everest Shiraz 2019

RRP: $330.00



“Since winning the trophy for World’s Best Shiraz for the initial 2005 vintage, this wine goes from strength to strength with every vintage released” – Michelle Geber (Managing Director)


Dense ruby colour. An intense, enticing nose of rich, red berry fruits and subtle French oak. The wine is incredibly dense and focused with a richness and purity that simply exudes top-class Barossa Shiraz.

Rich dark chocolate, mocha and cedar spice are all to the fore, but the central core is highly focused. Supple tannins from the gentle press merely complement the fruit, silky and rich yet impressively interwoven into the wine. The fruit/ acid balance ensures excellent length and provides a purity of structure for long-term ageing.


Only the very best grapes are selected from individual vineyard blocks in exceptional vintages. Hand-picked, hand-sorted to 1 ton open fermenters with four times daily plunging and careful basket pressing. The highest quality parcels from this year’s fermented wines are set aside for 18 months maturation in the finest French oak. Once bottled the wine spends a further 24 months maturing in our cellars before release.

98 Points: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Immensely complex and enticing, the wine is packed with blackberry, violet, vanillin oak, warm spice and smoked game characters with a light dusting of dark cocoa on the nose. The gorgeously refined palate delivers outstanding depth and velvety mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by beautifully infused tannins. Multi-layered and opulent with plush texture, this is compelling and gratifying. At its best: 2025 to 2049.”
97 Points: Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
“… Opaque purple, the nose is a wonderful mix of roast meats, mocha, cigar box hints, black fruits, some notes very reminiscent of the very best Rhône reds, cassis, cloves, leather and cocoa powder. This is big, bold and ripe with serious length, finishing with slippery though ever-so-slightly chalky tannins. The cassis dominates on the palate and there is a line of fine acidity running the length. Richly flavoured, this is just delicious. Great now, even better in three to four years, and certain to drink superbly for at least the next 15 to 20 years. This will do me.”
95 Points: Halliday Wine Companion
“…Deep crimson in colour with unctuous blackberry, black cherry and plum fruits cut with hints of baking spices, panforte, dark chocolate, vanillin oak, blackberry jam, clove, cedar and charcuterie. Full bodied and structured with chocolatey tannins, a vivid acid cadence and layers of elegant black fruits finishing long with a savoury, graceful air.”
