The purest and most complex Shiraz from an extraordinary vineyard.

The Original Vineyard Shiraz is the pinnacle of Shiraz we produce. We are incredibly lucky to have a vineyard that can produce a profile of Shiraz such as this. Facing east and growing in a valley alongside the Wild Duck Creek adjacent to the winery, the Original Vineyard has proved over three decades to be a truly remarkable place. It is protected from harsh winds during the growing season by its surrounding geography. The soils naturally hold what little moisture falls upon them so the vines are able to bask underneath clear Heathcote sunshine in blissful happiness.

The grapes are then picked at full and balanced ripeness, with up to 50% of whole bunches retained in each small ferment. Once dry, the wine is then gently pressed into 100% new Dominique Laurent barrels, with each small parcel from the vineyard kept separate. The parcels are determined usually by the variation in soil throughout the vineyard, with certain areas being picked before others depending on ripeness. The very best barrel is then selected and bottled on its own. Only 300 bottles are filled in exceptional vintages.

Buying At Auction?

Your Questions, Answered

What do you need from me to get started?

We will need you to confirm that you are over 18 (for obvious reasons!) and to open an account by registering on the site. This will include provision of credit card details for any eventual purchases. You will also need to sign that you have read the terms and conditions.

How many wines are in each Lot?

You will see the quantity (number of bottles) stated above the price. Please note that the bid-price is per bottle so you will need to multiply the price by the number of bottles in the lot to calculate the total price of the lot.

Can I cancel my bid if I change my mind?

All bids are final - please think before you confirm your bid.

How much is the Buyers' Commission?

We have an extremely competitive buyers' commission of 16.5% (GST inclusive). This will be added to the final winning price of your Lot at the end of the auction.

What are your freight charges?

Please see our Delivery Policy for full details relating to freight.

Is there a Guarantee on my wine?

Under Australian law, consumer guarantees do not apply to goods purchased at auction - all such purchases are at the risk of the Buyer. We will always provide as much detail as we can as to the visual condition and provenance of each Lot, however this is done so as a guide rather than as a guarantee.
