McPherson Family Series

With a focus on traditional winemaking craftwork and state-of-the-art technology, McPherson wines are made to be easy-drinking, fruit driven styles with generous mouth-filling flavours. For almost 40 years the McPherson family have been committed to producing high quality wines at an affordable price.

Producer Profile

They are an independent, family owned winery making wines that are served in beautiful bars and restaurants around the globe.  Since their origin in 1968, they have steadily established ourselves as Australia’s least well known top twenty winery, happily enjoying our under the radar reputation as a quality, efficient and innovative winemaker for those in the know.

Their aim, with every wine they make, is to produce excellent, high quality wines combining the care and attention of a micro producer with the efficiencies of a major player.  This attention to detail and quest for perfection has seen them steadily attract like-minded partners across the globe, and allowed them to grow into the winery you see today.

Winemaking

The grapes for this Shiraz were picked and crushed during the cool of night, thus ensuring the retention of varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout, all of which help to create the signature McPherson style. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction. Softer tannins are also a result of this process, an important feature of the McPherson Shiraz style. Careful attention was also paid to the oak selection for the Shiraz. This wine was aged on French oak for approximately 8 months, giving the wine a noticeable, but not an excessive oak influence. The inclusion of some central Victorian fruit into the blend has boosted both the colour and the intensity of flavour.

Tasting Note

Andrew’€™s Shiraz is a deep purple, with delicious ripe blackberries, plums and a hint of pepper on the palate. This is a full bodied modern Australian wine with an impressive length and a great finish. A colourful character, Andrew McPherson has spent his working life making wine and has made an incredible contribution to the Australian Wine Industry. Andrew loves a great Shiraz and a great Sunday lunch, combining the two with family and friends on most weekends.

Food Matching

Try this wine with Char-grilled steak or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne – a perfect match!
