Victoria
The wine region of Victoria has the highest number of grape vines than any other state in Australia. It is home to over 600 wineries and well known regions such as Yarra valley, Heathcote, and Rutherglen. Victoria is situated in the southeastern corner of Australia where due to the location, the climate has a cool maritime influence and is known for their outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, along with producing Australia’s most famed dessert Muscat and Topaque wines.

There are a number of different terroir levels throughout the wine region of Victoria which leads to the production of different ranges of wines. In the southern region of Victoria, the vines are regulated by the cool winds of the Bass Strait. Central Victoria consists of mostly flat terrain that tends to be drier and warmer than the rest of Victoria, which results in more fruit concentrated wines. It may be surprising to note that Victoria is the third most productive wine region in Australia, seeing as it does not have as many areas suitable for viticulture, which has resulted in the cellar door culture of Victoria being concentrated with smaller, but more personal boutique wineries.

Sam Kim
Full, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, near impenetrable, a little lighter on the rim. This has a softly full and deep nose with aromas of sweetly ripened dark-red and black plums along with blackberry and boysenberry fruit, entwined with nuances of black pwepper and spices, and sweet oak vanillins. Full-bodied, the palate is succulently rich with very ripe fruit flavours of black plums, boysenberries and blueberries, along with black pepper nuances, unfolding spices and sweet oak, and eucalypt nuances. The mouthfeel is rich and juicy with fine-grained tannin structure in support and a thread of acidity providing energy. The fruitiness carries the wine to a sweet finish balanced by fine, dry textures. This is a rich, juicy and succulently sweet, ripe Shiraz with flavours of black plums and boysenberries, along with pepper, spices and eucalypt. Match with grilled and roasted red meat dishes over the next 8+ years. A barrel selection wine. Shiraz fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 2-5 y.o. French and American oak hogsheads.
