Nestled in the northern foothills of Victoria’s Pyrenees, Berrys Bridge adheres steadfastly to the ‘less is more’ maxim, offering just three varietals in extremely limited quantities—this superb Shiraz is one of them.
A rare gem and a real bargain, Berrys Bridge makes Shiraz wines that are traditional and powerful, and drink best after several years of cellaring. This time, we’ve done the work for you. This Barossa Shiraz is drinking at its prime right now.
The Pyrenees is located in western Central Victoria and was settled during the gold rush of the 1850s. The region is located northeast of the Grampians, north of the Great Dividing Range. Many of the vineyards are planted with an easterly aspect at an altitude of around 350 to 400m on quartz and decomposed slatey soils over Friable clay. Low rainfall in the area necessitates drip irrigation. Temperatures during the growing season are moderated by late afternoon southerly breezes. The Pyrenees is best known for producing cool climate peppery Shiraz and well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
