About this product +

Producer >

Irvine is owned by the Wade and Miles families who together own over 400 acres of vineyards in the Barossa. Peter Miles is a 4th generation vigneron and the original plantings from 1867 (Shiraz) remain on the property today. Irvine wines come predominantly from the Eden Valley vineyards. Their persistent focus is on Merlot, they are one of the most awarded Merlot producers in Australia. Their focus on DNA and viticulture is vital, without good fruit…. Head winemaker Lachlan Duncan has worked vintages in Ribera del Duero, Oregon and Valpolicella. He was instrumental in developing today’s style in iconic neighbouring winery Rockford. These wines are restrained, elegant and complex. Like a good album, they’ll grow on you!
