Of all the Australian wine regions renowned for great Shirazes,
the Pyrenees in central Victoria would be in anyone's top bracket.
The region's continental climate, with warm summers and cold
winters, invariably produces a wine of depth and substance, yet
one which shows to its best advantage the inherent elegancy
of this famous variety.
Peerick Shiraz is matured in only the best small oak barrels.
Usually, about 40% of the maturation volume is assigned to new oak,
of which about two-thirds is the highest quality American oak,
and the balance French.
