It’s just hilarious, brilliant concept and brilliant wine. Gary is the accountant and he didn’t know they were making the wine as it was not cost effective, but passion overcomes number crunching here. If you love Shiraz this will moisten your thighs.

Producer Profile

This wine is a labour of love – one the accountants didn’t know about. In 2014, I discovered an exceptional parcel of Shiraz from the Grampians which I gently crushed, then tucked away in some ridiculously expensive French Oak barrels to age for 12 months. The wine speaks for itself – minimal intervention, purity of fruit, Shiraz at its best. Made by a winemaker, not an accountant. Enjoy with abandon. Just … Don’t tell Gary.


Fruit for the DTG Shiraz was sourced from a single vineyard established in 1998 in the rugged, mountainous Grampians region of Victoria. Wines from this region typically produce characters of elegance, power and beauty with staying power.


The wine was fermented with wild yeast, in open pots, hand plunged twice a day for 10 days. As soon as primary fermentation was complete, the wine was racked into 500L French Oak Puncheons (80% New Oak, 20% 1 Year Old), where it was left to go through malolactic fermentation. With minimal intervention, the viticulture/winemaking was more important than ever.

Tasting Note

The DTG Shiraz is a beautiful dark garnet colour with black cherry, blueberry and mixed spice on the nose. Hints of pepper and soft oak spice are beautifully integrated with blackberry fruits and medium bodied silky tannins.
