Mountainside Wines is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery which is situated at the base of Mount Cole at the south eastern end of the Grampians wine region.The location protects our vineyards and we have warm days, cool nights, and a long growing season. This provides good acid structure in our wines which supports depth of flavour and integration of aromas and flavours. Added to this are the unique soil conditions of granite loam over red clay allowing the flavours of the wine to shine. This means wines produced in our little corner of the Grampians are rich and full of flavour and aroma and represent a unique picture of the area.
This shiraz has flavours of blueberry, spice and black pepper with hints of clove and nutmeg. The integration of fine oak gives the wine soft tannins and a long clean finish.
Available from the Great Western Hotel at $35 a bottle or $10 a glass
