The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2011 Garden Gully Vineyard Grampians Shiraz

Cellar Door

The ancient Garden Gully vineyard was harvested in great condition, with a moderate crop and good natural acidity. fermented in open puncheons this wine is a blend of the best barrels from the 1.5 tonnes received.  All ferments used indigenous yeasts and bacteria, with approximately 30% whole bunches, toned down from previous years because of the cool season to avoid excessive herbal characters. The wine was raised for 12 months in French oak barriques, 35% new. It shows delicacy, lightness and earth, supple tannins and silky texture, with a very savoury, long finish. Bottled with no fining and no filtration

– Vine age: approx 100 years
– 13.5% alc. pH 3.52
