Deep dark purple.
Intense aromas of fresh black and red berries with delicate touches of cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
Mesa Shiraz is an elegant yet rewarding cool-climate wine. It exhibits a beautifully ripe core of dark fruits, lifted by complex notes of cinnamon and star anise. Powder fine tannins and subtle French oak complete this regional classic.
This wine will cellar for at least ten years.
Sourced from the original Dalwhinnie vineyard along with our Forest Hutt plantings, a little further down the hill.
Fruit was harvested in distinct batches and fermented separately for 10–14 days. The wine was then pressed to tank to undergo malolactic fermentation and then racked to largely seasoned French oak barrels. After a 14 month maturation, the barrels were emptied and some Moonambel and Eagle Shiraz barrels where included in the final blend for further depth and complexity.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2022
Very deep, bright red/purple colour. Spicy, peppery, fresh earth and red fruit aromas of some complexity, especially considering its youth. The wine is medium to full-bodied and soft-textured, with no shortage of tannin, but the texture is supple and drying, the fine-grained powdery tannins augmenting the savoury flavours. There is abundant fruit within but the overall style is savoury, food friendly and very stylish. Very long aftertaste. Great value.
Great value Shiraz
I was fortunate to visit Dalwhinnie’s Cellar door recently to taste some of their wonderful wines. I brought some of the Mesa Shiraz home and it was consumed quickly over Christmas. So the opportunity to restock over the internet was a boon. A great wine at a reasonable price.
At this stage I haven’t tried the Shiraz but enjoyed the tasting at the cellar door. We also purchased the Pinot Noir which we have used and would rate as the best Pinot I’ve had. Will be looking to purchase more Dalwhinne wine down the track.
Great Dalwhinnie Shiraz at this price point.
A friend said one bottle is not enough. It was good advice.
Great value Dalwhinnie Shiraz
Dalwhinnie always makes great Shiraz and this is no expectation. A great value wine from a great producer!
An absolute classic. Delicious.
