McGuigan ‘Classic’ Shiraz 2011

22-Jun-2012
The McGuigan family is one of the greats in the Hunter Valley and Australia. Owen McGuigan, born in 1869, was a dairy farmer who supplemented his income by working in local vineyards, a tradition carried on by his son Perce. Owen's grandson Brian established McGuigan as a stand-alone brand, and this has grown to be one of the strongest in the Australian industry today, with a production of millions of cases. The company draws fruit from a wide variety of sources and has wineries in the Hunter Valley and the Barossa. There are ranges of McGuigan wines for all niches, the ‘McGuigan Classic' wines designed for traditional liquor, to avoid competition with supermarkets and are populist, offering value. I see the Shiraz as the best of the ‘Classic' tier. www.mcguiganwines.com.au The brand is distributed by EuroVintage in New Zealand. www.eurovintage.co.nz
