Grampians Estate has established an iconic reputation for its cool-climate peppery shiraz.
Two vineyards provide the secret to its success: the eight acre Mafeking vineyard, first planted in 1989, is located south of the Great Dividing Range alongside the Grampians National Park, whilst the Great Western St Ethels vineyard features some 130 year-old shiraz vines.
Kelly's Welcome sparkling wine has been created in the ‘Methode Traditionelle” style and is a 100% Chardonnay single vineyard wine from the Mafeking vineyard. This wine has had 8 years on lees giving it some lovely yeasty creamy flavours to go with its peach and apple flavours, its excellent length and balanced acidity.
Available from the Great Western Hotel at $35 a bottle or $10 a glass
