Welcome to Wallaroo Wines
Wallaroo Shiraz 2008, Canberra: Wine Review by Jancis Robinson
"On a granite ridge in the Hall district. Back label claims it will benefit from three or more years in bottle.
Lively, developed and very transparent nose that suggests quite a cool climate.
Sweet start but then a lovely dry finish. Really rather like a delicate Côte Rôtie. Very pretty.
Seems just right now - whose bowl of porridge again?
Quite, quite different from a typical Barossa Shiraz, for example. Tense."
Named after the shy black woolly wallabies, called Wallaroos, that we sometimes find hiding in the vineyard, Wallaroo Wines is a family owned, cool climate vineyard in the renowned 'Hills of Hall' sub-region near Canberra.
Straddling a granite ridge above the Murrumbidgee river, overlooking the gorgeous Brindabella Ranges, warm days and cool nights, during ripening, ensure full flavours combine with the unique Hall micro-climate to produce our soft, elegant, award-winning wines.
