Shiraz from the Orange is quite unique in style compared to most other regions in Australia and is more reminiscent of the Northern Rhone, France.
The Idiot does not follow the rules of convention; a fool to some, a genius to others. Philip Shaw embrace the unconventional and complex character of his shiraz. Not afraid to make a statement, this wine captures the playful, eccentric and unique elements of shiraz from a cool climate.
"Aged in old oak barrels for 10 months this is playful in style matching the label and ethos of the winemaker Philip Shaw. A lovely bouquet of blueberry and red berries along with liquorice and spicy peppery notes. Medium-bodied on the palate with more red berries and pepper notes followed by a medium finish. Really rather elegant. Angus, Wine Guru
