About the Wine

McGuigan winery is one of the most awarded wineries in all of Australia. Most of its wines have received 90+ points from some of the most important wine critics in the world. And only in 2017, they received a total of 595 medals. In 2019, Neil McGuigan was named for the 4th time, “Winemaker of the Year”by the International Wine Challenge (IWC).

The story of this award-winning winery dates back to 1880 when the McGuigan family arrived in Hunter Valley. Today, the estate has vineyards in some of the most emblematic wine regions like McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, and Barossa Valley.

Neil McGuigan is the owner and winemaker. With more than 30 years of winemaking experience (and 4 “Winemaker of the Year” awards), he sure knows the Australian wine biz. He produces high-quality, premium wines that will enchant even the most demanding wine palates.

McGuigan Hand Made is 100% Shiraz. This label is an extremely limited one, and as its name implies, it's 100% handmade. It comes from the vineyards of the outstanding town of Langhorne Creek, crafted with grapes from low-yielding vineyards. The result is a magnificent, powerful yet elegant Aussie Shiraz. This wine is the pinnacle of the McGuigan portfolio of wines.

Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels. 

Tasting Notes: 100% Shiraz. Initial pepper spice aroma followed by wild fruits and vanilla. A rich full-bodied wine with a wonderful mix of dark cherries, plum, and spice - reminiscent of Christmas cake.

Reviews

This powerful wine offers a heady mix of strawberry, raspberry and plum aromas alongside accents of soy, olive, ground pepper and dried flowers. The palate is finely textured, with chalky, savory tannins and lifted acidity that support the tangy fruit. Drink now–2029. ~92 Wine Enthusiast.

Forward, ripe and sweet dark fruits, strawberry jam, wild aniseed and caramel, lifted by refreshing mint. ~91 Decanter.
