Wine Tasting Note: Shepherd's Hut Porongurup Shiraz, 2003, Western Australia.
Available from Travelling Grapes, price TBC.
With a mass of blackberry fruit and plenty of soft tannins this medium-bodied wine from Western Australia is a delight. Pepper and spice notes enliven the palate and finish with a plummy, light oaked flourish. Alcohol 14%. Fusion food is recommended here - try a traditional Shepherd's Pie with the mince spiked with a selection of Indian spices; the match was lovely.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100


The vineyard, sited in the eastern foothills of the Porongurup Ranges in the Great Southern region of Western Australia was established in 1996 . Back in the 1850's there were four stone huts that were used by shepherds who were tending their flocks in the regions lush pastures. One of these old, now dilapidated, huts was on estate property. It was rebuilt overlooking the vines and is used by the family when working in the vineyard. It is apparently built from the original a honey-coloured Mt Barker stone and has sweeping views to the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges.
